Narrative and Notes

Private Arthur William Box, 226353, was in the Army Service Corp Mechanical Transport in the British Army during World War 1, and served in East Africa where he died of nephritis. He would have been based at the port were a depot was maintained to serve the supply needs of the British forces in the East African theatre. This may have been in Dar-es-Salaam, the capital of modern day Tanzania, which has been captured from the German East Indies forces in September 1916.

Arthur enlisted on 31 Jan 1915, but was discharged on 16 Jul 1916 due to sickness. Despite being discharged he wasn't able to return home.

He was awarded the Silver War Badge.

He is memorialised at St Michael's, Buckland, Gloucestershire where he was a parishioner. The inscription reads "PRIVATE ARTHUR WILLIAM BOX ASC:MT DIED OF NEPHERITIS EAST AFRICA JAN 13TH 1918 AGED 39".
