About the memorial: Memorial to Major Charles Henry Green, 1st Battalion the South Staffordshire Regiment. Fourth son of the late Sir Frederick Green, K.B.E., and Lady Green (born in Sydney, the daughter of a baronet, Sir Daniel Cooper), of Oaklawn, Wimbledon Park, London, England. Husband of Ruth Green (now Mrs John Badham of 14 Hill Street, Knightsbridge, London, England). Married in 1913 at the Parish Church of St George, Hanover Square, London. Born at Hainault Lodge in Chigwell Row, Essex. Educated at Harrow School. Served in South Africa during the 2nd Anglo Boer War 1899-1902. Served in France with the 7th Division from Oct 1914, and was seriously wounded at the first Battle of Ypres. Mentioned in Despatches for conspicuous bravery. Once recovered, he was sent to the Cameroons and then on to East Africa, where he was attached to the 3rd Battalion of the Nigeria Regiment, probably because of his experience with the West African Frontier Force between 1901 and 1908. At the time of his death, he was Acting Second-in-Command. He was again mentioned in Despatches in January 1918, and recommended for the DSO. He died of wounds, near Mkwera in Tanzania aged 35 years. Buried in Mkwera Cemetery, whose war graves were lost. Now commemorated on Spec. Mem. No. 7. in Dar es Salaam War Cemetery, Dar-es-Salaam, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Also commemorated on 2 memorials in All Saints Church, Chigwell Row, Essex.
