Charles Wall was the son of John Wall of 50 Plant Street, Wordsley. He volunteered in the second week after the outbreak of war and joined the 1st Battalion of the Worcesters. After a brief training he was posted to the Battalion which had been stationed in India and had returned soon after war was declared in August 1914. It landed in France on the 5th November and went into the front line in Artois. The Allied High Command decided that the first attacks of 1915 should be in Artois and for the opening battle of Neuve Chapelle the Worcesters were in the front line. The battle lasted from the 10th to the 15th March and was hard-fought. No significant ground was gained and the losses were high. They included Private Charles Wall who was killed in action on the 13th March and commemorated on the Le Touret and Wordsley Memorials.
