Charles Jeeves, the son of Anthony and May Jeeves of Albert Park Road joined a Chums company of the 7th Royal Dublin Fusiliers shortly after the outbreak of war and landed at Gallipoli on 9th August 1915. He transferred to the Salonika front in November, he was wounded, and in September 1916 was again wounded while trying to get a mortally wounded Major to safety. For his bravery on that occasion he was awarded the Military Medal.

He was given a commission on 26th June 1917, and went to France attached to the 1/9th Liverpool Regiment. A sympathetic letter from his Colonel says: “Although he had only lately joined this Battalion he gave every promise of turning out an excellent officer, and needless to state, I am very sorry to lose him, especially as he was a tried man and had done such good work in the past.”
