His regimental number indicates that he was a late recruit, and was probably no older than 19. He was killed in the last few weeks in the war during the period known as the Hundred Days [2]. At this time the British Army were pushing the German Army back for the first time in the whole war. Pommereuil was one of several successful actions fought by the 1/8th Battalion at this time.

Despite being recorded as living in in Malvern Link, for some reason unknown he is not commemorated at St Matthias, Malvern Link [3].
