Private Howard Charles Allsopp

Howard Charles Allsopp was killed in the last major operation by the Battalion.

From G. K. Rose, The Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry.

“Moving up again on November 2, the Battalion made its last attack of the war. A fine success resulted. The objectives-St. Hubert and the ridge east of it–were captured, together with 700 prisoners, 40 machine-guns, and 4 tanks, recently used by the enemy in a counter-attack. The fruits of this victory were well deserved by the Battalion, the more because so often in the course of the war it had been set to fight against odds in secondary operations. It was a good wind-up.”
