Samuel Siviter came from Blackheath and volunteered for the Warwicks. He joined the 11th (Service) Battalion which went to France in July 1915 and had its first experience in battle at Loos on the 26th September. Its next engagement was in the middle phase of the Battle of the Somme in the long contest for Delville Wood. The German lines in the wood were stubbornly defended and on the 13th August Private Samuel Siviter was killed in action. He is commemorated on the Thiepval, Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
