George Field was the son of Mr and Mrs George Field of ‘Bryn’, Mount Pleasant, Kingswinford. He enlisted in the Durham Light Infantry and was transferred to the 3/5th Lancashire Fusiliers in the 66th (Second Lancashire) Division. They went to the Western Front in February 1917 and were stationed on the Belgian coast for a while. They then proceeded to take part in the Third Battle of Ypres. They were in the front line for the Battle of Poelcapelle which opened on the 9th October. In the appalling weather some ground was gained but it was a struggle of attrition. Among the casualties was Private George Field who was 37 years of age. He is buried in Buttes New British Cemetery, Polygon Wood (III A 17) and commemorated on the Wordsley Memorial.
