His correct name was Archibald Hugh de Ville. He lived in Market Harborough, with
his 2 young brothers and 3 sisters, and worked on his father’s farm.
At the start of the war he enlisted in the Leicestershire Yeomanry – not the Northamptonshire
Regiment as it says on the War Memorial .
He died on 13 May, 1915, aged 23, still as a private, and not Lance Corporal as shown
on the War Memorial. His name appears on the Menin Gate Memorial (panel 5) in Ypres.
At his death, his parents Charles and Georgina lived in Peckleton in Leicestershire:
It is unclear why he appears on the War Memorial in East Haddon.
