Arthur died just 22 days after being allowed home on leave to dance the Horn Dance which was known as the ‘Khaki Horn Dance’. Arthur served with the Lincolnshire Regiment. His resting place is in Noeux-les-Mines Communal Cemetery, France.His brother, David Fowell was killed in action in France on the 28th of April 1917 aged 24. Like his brother, David also served with the Lincolnshire Regiment and is remembered on the Arras Memorial.These two great characters of the village were sons of William and Lucy who lived in Bagot Street – all seven of their sons enlisted, two sadly were never to return.The brothers are pictured on the post we published last Sunday where we remembered the boys and men who went to war from the village.
