Victor George Bracher Nash was born in 1873 to James and Louisa Nash. He had a younger brother, James.

Victor was working as a builder’s clerk and later became an estate agent. In 1911, the couple were living at 53 Skelton Road, Wanstead, with their three children, Hilda, Frank and Marjorie.

Service Life:


Unit / Ship / Est.: 7/Leicestershire Regiment 

Action : The Battles of the Hindenburg Line and associated actions 

12 September - 12 October 1918. As the momentum of the British advance continued it was clear that the Hindenburg Line defences offered the greatest threat to further advances. It was highly likely that the magnificently engineered defence system would re-establish the status quo of static trench warfare. However a series of magnificent actions at Havrincourt and Epehy paved the way for dramatic crossings of the Canal du Nord and the St Quentin Canal by early October. Both canals had been integrated into the Hindenburg Line system and their capture effectively broke the defensive capability of the system. Soon afterwards the British were attacking at Cambrai (again) and then by mid October were pursuing the Germans to the River Selle.

Victor enlisted into the Royal Army Service Corps, but later transferred to the 7th Battalion, Leicestershire Regiment. He was sent to the Western Front, where he was killed on 11th September 1918. His name appears on the Memorial in Vis-en-Artois, France.
