The above photo was taken when Frank Mattimore (Mattimoe) was with the 81st Training Reserve, based at Usworth.

Frank Mattimoe (his correct name, - the name "Mattimore" is on the CWGC register and the Middlesbrough War Memorial and is a phonetic version of Mattimoe) joined the Yorkshire Regiment in November 1915, and had been promoted to Lance Corporal by February 1916 and Corporal in September 1916.

Unfortunately, in August 1917 he was reduced to the ranks for striking a Private soldier. He was then transferred out of the 81st Training Battalion into the 2nd Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment.

After fighting in France for 11 months, he was killed at the Battle for St. Quentin on 18 September 1918.

The above information, and the photos, is taken from the book "LIttle Ireland" by Philip Lees, and published by Philip Lees,
