Edward Goode came from Blackheath and was living in Rowley Regis when he volunteered for the Worcesters. He was sent to the 4th Battalion which was selected in 1915 for the Gallipoli campaign. The troops landed near Cape Helles on the 25th April and failed in the attempt to seize the peninsula. Fighting turned into trench warfare among the gullies and woods of the peninsula with frequent casualties. Private Edward Goode was seriously wounded and taken by hospital ship to Egypt. He died of wounds on the 1st July and is buried in Port Said War Cemetery (B 8). He is commemorated on the Halesowen Memorial.
