Cyril Wilson, the son of Albert and Mary Wilson was born in 1895 at Malvern. In 1901 his father was the caretaker of the Assembly Rooms on Grange Road. The Malvern News reported that he joined a bantam battalion at Worcester in 1915 – this was probably the 14th Worcestershire Regiment. He was wounded in early Spring 1916 and returned to France on his recovery. It is likely that at this time he was posted to the 8th Glosters.
