Walter William Heath


Full name Walter William Heath, born in 1888 in Holton, son of Charles Heath and Elizabeth Gleed, and thus brother of Charles junior and Percy Heath. He was a house boy (domestic) in 1901 and by 1911 had become a traction engine steerer at a stone quarry. He was another mentioned in the Oxford Times of 26 September 1914 as having enlisted in Kitchener's New Army, being assigned in his case to the Royal Irish Fusiliers. Service records appear to indicate that he also served, at least at some point, with the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. He married Emma T. Blackwell in the Banbury Registration District in 1933, and he died in that area in 1965. See also references to him in the Wheatley in a World at War chapter.

He lived at The King & Queen, 57 High Street with brothers Charles and Percy Heath.
