Rowland Stocker was at Warwick School and joined up aged 16. He was initially rejected because he was too young, but he joined up in 1917/18. He was wounded at Ypres and was given a driving job driving ammunition lorries. He was then sent to Greece and Turkey, where he was stationed in the old Turkish Labour Barracks in Istanbul. He came home in 1921 and contracted Spanish Flu, which he survived. He got a job at the Rowland Motor Company in Coventry and ended up in the Army Service Corps.
