PHILPOTT, Arthur Edward, died 9 April 1917, 772165 Canadian Infantry, born Dover on 18 November 1895. He was the son of James William Philpott and his wife Esther Mary, née Boyce, who had married in Dover at Holy Trinity on 10 November 1884. In 1901 they were at 55 Wyndham Road, Dover, with Mr Philpott a coal labourer. He was born in Faversham. At home were William James P, born 1884, a grocer's assistant, Annie Elizabeth, 1887, domestic servant, Arthur, Florence Edith, 1896, and Ernest G, born about 1899. In 1911 they were at 22 Victoria Street, Dover. Arthur had become an errand boy. William was  in Rawalpindi, Punjab, India, with the overseas military. Arthur enlisted on 20 October 1915 in Brantford, Ontario; his mother's home address was then 303 Dalhousie Street, Brantford, and he was occupied as a shipper.

With his religion as Church of England he was a Salvation Army man when he died. He left a wife, from 219 Dalhousie Street, and a little son whom he had never seen. A picture of Arthur is available. His brother William James also died; commemorated on the Le Touret memorial.

James Philpott also served, as 772660 in the 125th battalion like his son. He was a labourer and was employed in Canada by Mickle, Dyment, and Co.  His attestation on 19 January 1916 suggests he was born on 10 November 1870; he was actually born in 1865. He was 5'4" tall, with light brown hair and blue eyes. He was discharged as medically unfit on 26 September 1916. He had had 18 years military experience, with the Buffs (8 years), the RGA (7 years), and the 38th DRC (3 years). His address at enlistment was 219 Dalhousie Street, naming his wife as next-of-kin.
