Joseph Mole was the son of Jonah and Silene Mole of 150 Halesowen Street, Blackheath, and was married to Ellen. They were living at 64 Nimmings Road, Blackheath. He enlisted in the Staffords and went to the 1/5th Battalion. They had suffered severely at Loos, on the Somme and during Third Ypres. In March 1918 they were in the Artois sector on the line of the La Bassée Canal and thereby missed the strong German offensives to north and south. Nevertheless, on the 26th April a German attack had to be repelled and two counter-attacks followed. In one of these Private Joseph Mole was killed in action. He was 39 years of age and is commemorated on the Loos, Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
