Extra details

Jimmy was the 2nd child and eldest son of William Alexander and Magdalene Amos.

For a short time he was a pupil at Wharton Road School but following the death of his father, in 1909, he went to the Commercial Travellers’ School in Pinner. On leaving school in 1915 he was employed by G Felix Harris, Leadenhall Street EC3 as a clerk in the American & Australian Dept.

He was a member of the Congregational Church and was an enthusiastic worker in the Sunday school, of which he was librarian. It is said that he was “a high spirited lad”.

Six month prior to his 18th birthday he joined the Honourable Artillery Company and shortly after he transferred to the Flying Corps where he was an observer. He was sent to the Front with 18th Squadron on 20/6/1918, transferring to 22nd on 3/7/1918. He was reported missing on 29/8/1918. A letter from the Chaplain to his mother said that they buried him where he fell, by his burnt plane.
