Well, I'm back to researching specific sons of William Abraham Hodges and have hit a bit of a block on the Military Career of Harold Augustus. I know that he was Gazetted as a 2nd Lt. in the 3rd. Btn. Monmouthshire Regiment 29 August 1914. After the regiment was disbanded in July 1916, he became attached to 11th Btn. Sourh Lancashire Regiment. He served in France for all of his career, eventually reaching the rank of Captain and appears to have been twice mentioned in Despatches. He was Killed in Action on the night of 24 March 1918. - source: Biographies section "With Rifle and Pick" by Janet and John Dixon. I have the Probate Register record of 27 January 1920 when probate was granted to 2 of brothers - Leslie Noel and Cecil Stuart Hodges. Value of Estate was 9,861 pounds. He never married to my knowledge. I cannot find out much more of his life in France that resulted in the 2 mentions in Despatches, nor can I find his Service Records and Meal Index Cards on Ancestry. Can anyone assisr with this aspect of his life?
