Charles Tristram was from Cradley and enlisted in the Worcesters. He went to the 3rd Battalion who were at Messines in the early part of 1916 and were then ordered to the Somme. They were in action four days after its start, attacking the notoriously difficult Leipzig Salient near the village of Thiepval. On the 16th July they attacked at Ovillers in an attempt to clear the village and after a month out of the line they returned to the Leipzig Salient for an attack on Thiepval. Private Charles Tristram was seriously wounded and died of wounds on the 19th August. He is buried in Forceville Cemetery (II E 11) and is commemorated on the Cradley and Halesowen Memorials.
