Pte Cox from Handsworth Birmingham served throughout the war with the 9th. He was left for dead and was rescued by a passing officer who heard him moan/move. Regrettably no documentary evidence survives. It is believed his mother did not see him at all throughout the course of the war. He later helped set up the Royal British Legion branch in Handsworth, and subsequently served as Hon Secretary of the Legion's branch in Blackheath, Birmingham where he had moved with his family. Born 1896, died 1957. He is buried in St. Paul's Churchyard, Blackheath, Birmingham.

      The Life on the Home Front Archive aims to build a comprehensive collection to all others to learn about items them may have from this important period in history.

      We are hoping to include photographs of memorabilia, copies of documents, newspaper clippings, postcards, photographs, letters and other ephemera which together will build a picture of the dramatic changed to life in Britain brought about by the Great War of 1914 - 1918.

      All the items listed have been submitted by members of the public, we would love to add photographs or scans of any items you may have in your own possession to help build a comprehensive archive from which everyone may learn more about their own families and communities in during the Great War.

      To commemorate the Centenary of the Great War, the 'Life on the Home Front Archive' aims to create an online interactive archive to allow everyone to learn more about the effect of the Great War on their own families and community.
