Other Information:

George (known to all as Ben) was educated at the Parochial School before progressing to the Dover County School for Boys, where he was a pupil from 1905-1909. After leaving school at the age of 14 he was apprenticed to the Iron mongery with Mr Steed Bayley of Deal where it is thought he remained until volunteering for the army shortly after the outbreak of the First World War. At the age of 18 years, Ben enlisted into the R.A.M.C. in October 1914, and entered the war in France on 25th July 1915. He was awarded the Military Medal "On the 23rd October, 1917, he went to the village of Poelcapelle with two squads to endeavour to bring away wounded whom it had been impossible to remove owing to incessant shelling. Passing through an intense barrage he succeeded in locating the wounded. Being close to the enemy they were subjected to a direct intense machine-gun fire. Sgt. Trim dressed and sent the first two wounded men away and remained alone for two or three hours, dressing and placing the other wounded in comparative safety until squads arrived to take them away. With the help of the squads he succeeded in clearing a dozen men from this locality. [Source: The Pharos. No 29. December, 1918. Vol VIII. The Magazine of the Dover County School For Boys] At some point during the war, Ben was wounded in the leg but the injury was not serious enough to see him medically discharged. After demobilisation he returned to the family home in Deal. In 1939, when World War Two broke out, Ben, now in his early 40s, re-enlisted. This time he did not see service abroad. In 1941 he transferred to the Royal Army Service Corp and by the end of the war had risen to the rank of Captain. After moving his family to Somerset in the 1950s, Ben was to die of a heart attack some two months short of his 80th birthday. [Information researched and kindly provided by Ben's family.
