Absolom Goode came from Blackheath and volunteered for the Warwickshire Territorials. He joined the 2/7th Battalion which landed in France in May 1916 and went to the trenches around Neuve Chapelle, scene of the severe fighting in the previous Spring. To provide some diversion to help the troops fighting to the south on the Somme an attack was arranged for the 19th July. There was no breach of the enemy lines and the attack was a failure. Among the killed in action on this day was Corporal Absolom Goode. He is commemorated on the Loos Memorial and also on the Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
