Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the Bridgnorth area who died during the two World Wars.
Guy Broadfield Haseler was born in Handsworth in 1892. He was the son of John Haseler, a manufacturing jeweller, and his wife, Annie Marie. In 1901 they lived in Friary Road, Handsworth, moving to Devonshire Road, Handsworth Wood by 1911.
Guy was educated at Bridgnorth Grammar School. He worked as a salesman, possibly travelling for his father's company. He travelled to Argentina in July 1913, and returned, via New York in September 1914. His Commonwealth War Graves entry says that he 'came from U.S.A. to enlist.'
Guy joined the 5th Battalion Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry. He went to France with his battalion on 20th May, 1915 and was killed in action shortly afterwards on the 22nd of June. He is commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial.
Lance Sergeant Guy Broadfield Haseler, 10319, was awarded the Victory and British medals and the 1915 Star.
