From a relative:

"My Great Uncle was born on the Isle of Man on the 2nd August 1897. He was the eldest of 5 boys. At the beginning of the first world war the family all moved to Lancaster living at 17 Charles Street. Before enlisting in the King's Own he worked at Rembrandt on Queens Street. He enlisted in April 1915. He was wounded twice in 1915 and 1916 and had been in hospital with "Trench Foot". He was admitted to the 13th General Hospital Boulogne on September 5th suffering from gun shot wounds in then right hand and the left knee and was also gassed. His parents received a telegram that he was dangerously ill and then followed by an announcement of his death. He had died of wounds on 5 September 1918. His Father was a reservist with the Cheshire Regiment and he served with them in the South African War. After serving in Egypt from 1915 and Salonica he was invalided home with fever ad became an instructor of musketry in a training camp in Seaton Carew Co Durham. He also served in the Boer War. One of his brother Private Henry Patterson enlisted with the Mancheste's and had been wounded and spent time in a French Hospital but he survived,

His brother Richard (My Grandad) wasn't born until 1 June 1908 and was too young to enlist in the First World War but at the outbreak of the second world war he joined the King's Own and came out in August 1945."
