Eric Halse was mentioned in Despatches presumably for the Dardenelles campaign. Born in Johannesburg in 1898, Eric Halse came to Bedford with his parents as a boy and was educated at Bedford Grammar School. After leaving the school in 1913 he joined the Artists Rifles, a territorial unit, and on the outbreak of war was commissioned with the East Yorkshire Regiment. During the 1914-1918 War he served at the Dardanelles and in France. Towards the end of the war he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps. He died in 1963.
