Harry Barnett lived at 47 Round Street, Netherton, and enlisted in the Worcesters. He joined the 2nd Battalion who had been on the Western Front since August 1914 and who had fought in Artois at Festubert in May and Loos in September. In 1916 they came to the front line again for the Battle of the Somme, fighting at Bazentin on the 14th July and High Wood. They returned to the trenches at Delville Wood and were part of a minor attack on the 20th in the confused remains of the woodland. Eleven men were killed while they were in the front line, including Private Henry Barnett. He is commemorated on the Thiepval and Dudley Memorials.
