Other Information:

Cecil was educated at the Intermediate School at Loughbourough, and became engaged in business at Adderly’s, Leicester. He enlisted into the R.A.M.C. in February 1915, and served on the Western Front, then went to Mesopotamia. He was killed at Sheria, Palestine whilst attending wounded under heavy shell fire. Capt Thornton, R.A.M.C. wrote to his family “Private Loader was with me in Macedonia, both on water duty and as voluntary helper in my medical tent. We had a very hard winter out there, and often so isolated that we could not readily send our sick into hospital. In Jan., Feb, and March, therefore, we ran a sick tent, and it was there that I learnt the real value of your son, for he was a born nurse, and, as I have heard from man after man ‘as gentle as a woman.’. I don’t think I ever met a man with such a gentle touch - a touch that never hurts. I am writing officially to the 3rd London Field Ambulance to express what I feel to the Officer Commanding, and I have already mentioned this by word of mouth. Both your son and Corpl. Lewis belonged to the same ambulance, and only attached to our brigade. I wish that I could say more in the way of comfort - that is impossible at present, but it is all well when a young soldier leads the life I know your son led - an example to us all for straight living, and making the best of every opportunity the Chaplain could give us of Holy Communion Services, and at the last forgetting self for others.” Cecil was the youngest son of George and Juliette (daughter of John Jephson of Derby) Loader of 79 Toothill Road, Loughbourough, Leicester.
