Private Edward William Charlton, RASC

Please create a page for my uncle, Private William Charles Charlton, a driver in the Royal Army Service Corps, who died at Ypres on 5th November 1914, aged 19, and is commemorated on the Menin Gate. I have his last letter home to his mother, a postcard to his brothers and 2 letters from his commanding officer. I also have copies of the letter accompanying his war medals, his named bronze memorial plaque from King George V1, a copy of a poster headed, 'For King and Country to the Glory of God and in Everlasting Memory of........', photos of his name on the Menin Gate and a photo of his parents outside their home.
