Arthur Horne 1899-1965

Arthur was born in Spratton in December 1899, the son of Thomas Horne, a farm labourer from a long-established family in the village, and his wife Emma.  They lived with their large family in a three-roomed cottage in Manor Road, Spratton. Three brothers served in the war – Thomas, Arthur and Lewis.  Thomas and Arthur returned safely, but Lewis was killed in action in France.

Arthur enlisted in February 1916 aged 16 and after four months training was posted to serve on HMS Spey.  He served on HMS President on patrol work in the North Sea, off the Belgian coast and in the Adriatic. In January 1917 he was transferred to HMS Routter until he was demobbed in May 1919.  He was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

Arthur married Daisy Florence Page from the High Street, Spratton, in January 1923 and they lived in Smith Street.  Arthur worked as a general labourer. Daisy died young on 13 July 1938 and Arthur died in Northampton in June 1965 aged 66 years.
