2nd Lieutenant John Turner Price
2nd Lieutenant John Turner Price, enlisted into the 5th Battalion of the King's Own in 1914. He was allocated the number 3274 which was later changed to 241126 as part of the 1917 re-numbering of the Territorial Force Battalions. It is believed that John served with the 1st/5th Battalion on the Western Front, however some records state that he was with the 2nd/5th Battalion.
John was commissioned and killed in action as a 2nd Lieutenant on 28th May 1918, and again records conflict with some stating he was with the 1st/5th and others the 2nd/5th at the time of his death. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Loos Memorial, France. He was the son of Charles and Ann Price of Main Street, Skerton, Lancaster. His father donated two photographs to the regimental museum
