Corporal Amos MANNING

Royal Army Service Corps 24387

Amos Manning was born in Spratton on 4 February 1889, the eldest son of Job Manning, an ironstone labourer from a long-established family in Spratton, and his wife Ann Elizabeth. Job and his wife went on to have a large family of eight children – four boys and four girls. The family lived first in a small cottage in First Turn, Spratton (now Holdenby Road), but later moved to Third Turn (now Smith Street). Three of the Manning brothers served in the First World War – Amos, Frank and Nathaniel and all returned safely.

Amos had joined the regular army before the war began and when he was 24 was serving in the Royal Army Service Corps as a baker on a military base overseas – either Arabia, Cyprus or Gibraltar. He began his war service on 11 August 1914 but we have been able to find little further information about him apart from the fact that he was still in the army in 1918.  He was awarded the 1914 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

In 1913 Amos married Bertha Susanna Keeber who worked at The Red Lion in Brixworth. He died in March 1936 in Brixworth.
