 "Before closing this notice we should add that we are deeply indebted to the late Mr G. H. Nelson and Messrs Edward W. and Walter Nelson (the Warwick directors) who afforded us all the information we desired, and placed us in the position to acquire more than we could use" Alfred Barnard 1899


Second-Lieutenant Walter Nelson served with "B" Company of the 1/6th South Staffords. He was a native of Warwick but was living and working in Paris when war broke out. He joined the French Foreign Legion and served with them for several months before transferring the British Army. He joined the 1/6th South Staffords in August 1915, while the battalion was serving in the Hill 60 sector. Walter Nelson was killed while trying to cut gaps through the barbed wire to allow his platoon to move forward. He was 45 years old.
