Born and enlisted : Wigton, Cumberland.
Son of William Pattinson, of 50, South End, Wigton, Cumberland, and the late Lucy Pattinson
There is as yet no word about John Fleming Curran Pattinson ( Border Regiment), a Wigtonian who has been missing since July 10th last. The youngest son of Mr. Wm. Pattinson of South End, Wigton, he had been on active service with the Border Regiment since the outbreak of war, having been in the Militia and in the course of hard fighting at Neuve Chapelle, the Somme, Ypres and the advance of July 1916, was wounded on four different occasions.

Once he had the experience of reading a notice of his own death which had been wrongly reported in a newspaper. Private Pattinson was 24 years of age and in farm service before the war being  hired by Mr Beeby Williamson at Churchrigg. "Jack was a fine lad, steadt and quiet in civilian life, but a "devil to fight" when in cambat with the Hun."


Jack Pattinson was killed in action on 10th July 1917, at the battle of Nieuport Lombardzyte and is commemorated on the Nieuport Memorial, Belgium.
This article is from The Wigton Advertiser dated  February 2nd 1918.

Thanks John,
I think I'd like to link to that from the Roll of Honour, after asking the author's permission, of course. I see they have William H Hartley as well it would be nice to  get a larger copy of the picture of his grave, but I can see no link to the author unfortunately :- Good stuff though....
