Private H Wilson, Army Service Corps

Little is known about this man; only what was published in Chailey’s parish magazine. 

In February 1916 Pte H Wilson of the Army Service Corps is reported to be in England.  In June 1916 he is reported in France.  In February 1917 he is reported as being invalided and this information - Wilson, Pte H, ASC.  Invalided – is then repeated up to and including the final published roll call in July 1919. 

There is not enough information to identify who this man is in terms of a medal index card and similar difficulties when trying to find him on census returns.  There is nobody with the surname Wilson listed on the 1901 census for Chailey.
