Jason Rowe came from Blackheath. He was married and his wife later lived at 20 Olive Lane, Halesowen. He enlisted in the Sherwood Foresters and was sent to the 15th Battalion, which had been on the Western Front since February 1916. It fought on the Somme in 1916, in the Third Battle of Ypres in 1917 and again on the Somme in March 1918. It took part in the Advance to Victory and, after the final battle of Ypres, advanced against a still determined enemy towards the German frontier. At Courtrai on the 14th October the German forces fought their penultimate battle. The Sherwood Foresters took casualties and among them was Private Jason Rowe. He is buried at Dadizeele British Cemetery (VI B 38) near Courtrai and commemorated on the Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
