Ernest Ingram was the son of William Maria Ingram and lived in Halesowen. He attended Hasbury school and volunteered for the Staffords. He joined the 1st Battalion who were very active in the 1916 Battle of the Somme, capturing Mametz on the first day of the 1st July. In the Spring of 1917 the Staffords were in the follow-up of the German withdrawal to the newly built Hindenburg Line. An Australian attack at Bullecourt in April had produced a breach and the Staffords were in the next attack on the 12th May. Bullecourt was captured but at considerable cost. Private Ernest Ingram was among those killed in action. He was 22 years of age and is commemorated on the Arras, Halesowen and Hasbury school Memorials.
