Grave of Serjeant Walter Henry Martin in Chingford Mount Cemetery, Essex

Serjeant Walter Henry Martin served in the 138th Squadron of the RAF. He died on 6 November 1918 as an airman in training and is buried in Chingford Mount Cemetery, Essex, home of his squadron.

Walter was the son of Mrs Hickman of Wick Road, South Teddington, and the husband of Edith L Hickman (later Edith L Stripp) of 32 Addison Road, Teddington. His service number was 114640.

He died in training days before the Armistice and his Squadron never entered active service.
