Charles Green was born in Amblecote and lived in Brettell Lane. His father was a painter and Charles followed his father in the same trade as a house decorator. In 1916 he was married with a young son and by this time he was the licensee of The Park Tavern in Brettell Lane. He enlisted in February 1917 in the North Staffordshire Regiment but was transferred, probably on arrival on the Western Front in June, to the 1/6th King’s (Liverpool) Regiment which was a Territorial Rifle battalion. They were in Flanders preparing for the Third Battle of Ypres and were in the front line for the first day of 31st July. High losses were suffered in the battle of Pilkem Ridge and Rifleman Charles Green was killed by shell-fire during the advance. He was 30 years of age and is commemorated on the Menin Gate and Amblecote Memorials.
