On the books of Weald of Kent Lodge it states Percy Bates of Appledore Kent, was a Butcher and joined 3rd February 1915 (from Victoria Park Lodge No. 1816). There is a record he was "Killed in Action", being paid up to 1918.
The records of Victoria Park Lodge show him as a Mariner resident at Appledore, and that he "Died 6th May 1918"

Discrepancies (Require checks, clarity or further research) :

The original notes for this person were:

"Recorded against Weald of Kent Lodge as a Bombadier, and recorded against this Lodge as a Gunner. Possibly promoted and then joined the second Lodge at a higher rank" but it is difficult to reconcile this with the records of United Grand Lodge.
