Cpl. Wesley Costen

British Army Northamptonshire Regiment 7th Btn. D Co.

from:Grays, Essex

Wesley Costen served with D company of the 7th Northamptonshire Btn and arrived in France on 16 December 1916. He was a corporal at the time of arriving in France and was married with one child (my Grandfather). He was gassed but never seriously wounded (from my limited research). He was transferred to the Sufolk Reg in March 1919 and stayed on in Germany as part of the occupation force. He died in 1972 from a chest infection.I am continuing to research his service. Regards, Andrew Costen
