The only person I can find in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database with the same initials and surname as myself is the following soldier


In Memory of
C G HOBBS
Private
37841
1st Bn., Hampshire Regiment
who died on
Monday, 4th November 1918. Age 28.
Additional Information:
Son of William and Anne Hobbs, of 43, Mays St., Buckland, Portsmouth.
Commemorative Information
Cemetery:
CAMBRAI EAST MILITARY CEMETERY, Nord, France

II. A. 26.

I know nothing about him or the circumstances of his death but have reflected on the fact that he died just seven days before the war ended. I wonder what life he would have had if he had survived?
