'Archibald took a good place at Woolwich and qualified for the R.E., but elected to follow his brother in the gunners, and was gazetted in 1915 to a battery of the R.H.A then in Gallipoli, where he went in command of a draft. After the evacuation be went to Egypt, and then to France, where he took part in the Somme battles. He died on July 23rd, from shell wounds received the same day, and leaves a splendid reputation for good work well done. His commanding officer writes: "Beloved by all, he was the most utterly fearless fellow I ever met." Those who knew him at School can understand this.' (Malvernian, Nov 1917).
