Horace Allan's story
The bell has S A Wainwright. Horace was the son of Samuel A Wainwright (living in Plaistow in 1911), which is where the mistake in initials may have come from. He was born in Plaistow, lived in Barking and enlisted at Stratford. He was a Private, Regimental Number 8314, in 2nd Battalion, Princess Louise’s (Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders). He was killed in action on August 26th 1914 in France during the battle of the Marne, and has no known grave, although his name is recorded on the La Ferte-Sous-Jouarre Memorial.
Thanks to Paul McAllister for identifying this man.
