Chailey Parish Magazine notes in July 1917, Tingley, Pte W, 25th Training Reserve and in December 1917 updates this with Tingley, Pte W, 9th
I know very little about this man. On
12th March 1919 William's award of the DCM is confirmed in the supplement to The London Gazette,
"Chorley" should of course be "Chailey".
The medal roll for the British War and Victory medals gives a little more information about the battalions that William served with: the 9th Battalion, 11th Battalion and 12th Battalion. No service record however, survives to enable us to dig down a little deeper.
