Gardner William Sergeant Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regiment, awarded D C M. wounded at Baghdad, died of wounds in Mesopatamia 8 March 1917, 1917, age 40, address 1, Albert Square, Bridge Lane, Lancaster, educated at Quay school, employed at Lune Mills, he leaves a widow and seven children. His brother Private James, is serving in the same Battalion.

Source Lancaster Guardian date 24 March, 1917 page 5, photo Code ? 857, 867 .

William Gardner was born in Lancaster, one of the three sons of Mrs Jane Gardner of River Street, St. George's Quay, Lancaster. He attended St Mary's School on the Quay, and after leaving school worked at Lune Mills. He joined the 1st (Volunteer) Battalion, The King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment about 1899 and, in 1900/1901, served in the South African war with No 1 Volunteer Service Company, attached 2nd Battalion, King's Own. In recognition of this he received the Queen's South Africa Medal with five clasps, and his further Volunteer/Territorial Force service, up to about 1908, brought him the award of the Territorial Force Efficiency Medal.

In October 1914, William was among those who enlisted at Lancaster for the 8th (Service) Battalion, The King's Own. After a brief spell in camp at Codford, near Warminster, Wiltshire, 8th (S) King's Own moved to Boscombe, Hampshire, where it was made up to full strength, the men being billeted on the local people. Serious training then began as part of 76 Brigade, 25th Division, and, after further moves to Romsey and Aldershot, the Battalion sailed to Boulogne, France on 27 Sept 1915, and had its baptism of fire at Ploegstreet, near Armentiers.

The Battalion then moved to St Eloi, and earned its first battle-honour at 'The Bluff' on 2/3/4 March 1916, when it held the 'post of honour' at the centre of the attack, and the men went 'over the top' for the first time. They swept across the old German front line to the base of the 'Bean' salient, and re-gained British possession of the 'International Trench'. In this action William was wounded in the right shoulder, after which he was invalided to 3rd Battalion, King's Own at Plymouth. For his bravery in the field, he received the Military Medal in the King's Birthday Honours list - (London Gazette, June 1916). 8th (S) King's Own casualties for 2/3/4 Mar 1916 were: three officers and 120 other ranks killed or missing; nine officers and 210 other ranks wounded.

Following his recovery, William volunteered to join 6th (S) Battn, King's Own, then fighting the Turks in Mesopotamia. On 8 March 1917, he died of wounds, most probably from the ill-fated attempt to cross the Dialah River on the night of 7/8 March. One officer and fourteen other ranks were killed, and one officer and twenty-four other ranks were wounded. The only man not wounded or dead was Private Jack White, a signaller who, with great presence of mind, fastened one end of his cable to the pontoon, took to the water and swam to the 'home bank' and succeeded in saving the lives of 2nd Lt. Paterson and several of the other wounded men. For his gallantry in action, Jack White was awarded the Victoria Cross.

In 1914, William Gardner was a married, family man living at 1 Albert Square, off Bridge Lane, Lancaster. He died aged 41, leaving a wife, Mary Ann, and seven children. His eldest son, Private James Gardner, was serving with 6th Battn, King's Own in Mesopotamia when his father died.

William's elder brother, T5/0454 Sergeant John Gardner, was killed in action in France & Flanders while serving with 1/5th (T.F.) King's Own on 27 Apr 1915.

William Gardner is commemorated on the Basra war memorial in Iraq, and John and William Gardner are commemorated together on the Lancaster city war memorial.

John is the Uncle ofMrs Crane of Scot forth Lancaster, her mothers eldest of two brothers and four daughters. She did not know him but her mother talked a lot about him. She kindly passed on this story:

" Before he went into the army he worked as a shop assistant in Manserghs a big shop in Lancaster. My Mum told me that her parents paid to have the brothers taught the piano, which wasn't all that normal in those days for families without a lot of money. The boys then taught their sisters! They would be in trouble nowadays! John was an excellent pianist and went into a big competition in Lancaster which he won; he played the "Rustle of Spring". He used to go to the Centenary church - I think its a pub now (The Friary?).

He was always known as a gentle man and he used to paint water colours. That didn't stop him volunteering for the Army and he joined the Seaforth Highlanders in 1915; I think this was a special regiment raised perhaps in Liverpool. He was reported missing shortly after what I believe was his 19th Birthday; a friend of his told my Grandma that they were together in a bayonet charge when he lost sight of him. He went back afterwards but couldn't fmd him.

We still have, in the family with my niece a framed picture of him and we have a kilt he wore in the regiment. Its nice to have these remembrances of him".
