'Jeudwine left in the summer of 1914, intending to proceed to Caius, Cambridge. Like many others, he found himself at once called to other and sterner duties, and obtained a commission in the Special Reserve of the Lincoln Regiment. He saw a good deal of active service on the Western Front, and was twice wounded—May 1915 and 1916. On the first day of the battle of the Somme (July 1st, 1916) he was in action with his regiment, and was posted at the end of the day as Missing. Nothing further having been heard, he is now presumed to have been killed in action: one of thirteen O. Ms. who fell on that fatal day. He was a boy of considerable intellectual capacity, with varied interests and a catholic taste for all literature.' (Malvernian, Dec 1919).
On the first day of the Battle of the Somme his battalion was ordered to attack the German held village of Ovillers-La-Boiselle. The battalion had 450 casualties, including 21 officers with him being among the 'missing'.
