Selected Biography

Clouting, Bertram Edward – Born: Little Glemham, Suffolk on 10.6.1880.  Parents: Mark Clouting (Groom and Gardener) and Elizabeth [née Cornish].  Home: Turnpike Road, Little Glemham, Suffolk (1881), Brook Street, Little Glemham (1891), The Green, Long Melford (1911), 17 Marlborough Street, Ipswich (1939).  Occupation: Private [Mental Health] Attendant (1911), School Porter and a member of the First Aid Medical Section (1939).  Married: Emma Hyde in 1905.  Service Record: Attested in 1915 as Pte.19551 with 1st Battalion, Northamptonshire Regiment, transferring as Pte.40644 to 7th [Service] Battalion, Norfolk Regiment, then to 1/4th Battalion, Norfolks.  As there does not appear to be an extant Service Record for Bertram, it is not possible to say with any certainty where and with which unit he was serving at any particular time.  However, all the battalions quoted were posted overseas: 1st Northants was already on the Western Front in 1915, 7th Norfolks followed in May 1915 and 1/4th Norfolks was sent to Gallipoli from July to December of the same year.   Died: Braintree, Essex in 1942.[1]
