Hector George Yoxall was born in March 1892 in Shepherd’s Bush, London, and by 1911 was living in Tooting Broadway and working as a ledger clerk in a bookmakers. With the outbreak of the Great War Yoxall saw serviced initially as a Private (No.G-50924) with the Middlesex Regiment, before being commissioned into the same regiment as a 2nd Lieutenant on 30th April 1918. According to research which includes a copied image of the recipient, Yoxall then went on to be a 3rd Butcher with the Merchant Navy, and having claimed his medals in May 1935, then died the following year. Confirmed as his full entitlement.
