Harry Hall was the son of Mr and Mrs Hall of New Road, Hasbury, and attended both Hasbury and Halesowen C of E schools. He was a regular soldier with the 4th Battalion of the Worcesters and when the battalion returned from India late in 1914, it was sent to Gallipoli when the Turks decided to join Germany. The Worcesters landed near Cape Helles on the 25th April with few losses. However, the first Battle of Krithia three days later was a major setback and prevented further gains on the peninsula. Casualties were high and Private Harry Hall was killed on the 30th April. He was 28 years of age and is commemorated on the Helles Memorial and on the Halesowen, Hasbury and Halesowen C of E school Memorials.
