Cuttle, Geoffrey

Geoffrey Cuttle (Faculty of Laws) fell while on night duty at Neuve Chapelle. He was educated at Forest School, Walthamstow, and shortly after leaving school obtained an appointment in the Estate Duties Office, and in Michaelmas, 1912, entered the Faculty of Laws. While at school he was a member for several years of the O.T.C.: he obtained his Certificate A and the rank of Corporal. After he had joined the Estate Duties Office he became a member of the Artists' Rifles and proceeded with them to France at the end of October, 1914. He was selected with others almost immediately to replace officers of the regulars who were lost in the battle at Ypres, and was attached to the second battalion of the Yorkshire Regt., with which he served in the trenches from the middle of November to early in March almost continuously. The regiment took part in the attack at Neuve Chapelle, and while attending to his duties at night in the new trenches he was shot, and died within half an hour. King's College Review June 1915
