    • When the first world war broke out in August 1914, Hector Hugh Munro was forty-four. He enlisted in the Royal Fusiliers and was posted to France. He refused offers of a commission, but after two years of trench warfare he agreed to be promoted from private to lance-sergeant. A month later he was shot and killed on the last day of the Battle of the Somme.
