Harry Bullock lived at 3 Park Street, Stourbridge, and worked as a gunsmith in Birmingham. He enlisted in 1916 and was posted to the 2nd/4th Battalion of the Ox and Bucks in the 61st Division. This Division had been involved in the Third Battle of Ypres and in early 1918 was stationed on the front line near St. Quentin. When the first great German Spring offensive opened on the 21st March they suffered great losses. When the second assault started on the 9th April, the German forces again made great gains, capturing Armentieres. The 61st Division was then moved to the front line to halt the German advance at St. Venant. They were greatly outnumbered and again suffered heavily. Private Harry Bullock was one of the many who died.
