DUNN, Harry

South Staffordshire. 09 August 1915

Harry Dunn was born in Dudley and attended Cradley C of E School. He married and then lived with his wife, Annie, in Cradley Heath. He volunteered for the South Staffords and joined the 7th (Service) Battalion. They trained in England and were sent to Gallipoli. They landed with little opposition on the 6th August at Suvla Bay behind the Turkish line and three days later put in a big attack on the Turks. It was a disastrous introduction to front line fighting as the Turks had had time to make ready their defences. Among the many killed in action was Lance Corporal Harry Dunn. He is commemorated on the Helles, Cradley and Cradley C of E School Memorials.
