Born at Mornand, Loire on 1 April 1895, Victor was living at 18, rue de Clermont at Roanne at the time of his enlistment in December 1914. Originally enlisted into the 97e IR at Chamberey, Victor was transferred to the 416th following his training. He saw service on the Champagne front with his new regiment before moving to take a role in the Battle of Verdun. Fighting in the Douaumont, Vaux and St.Michel sectors, Victor was killed in action on 24 April 1916. He is now buried in the Nécropole nationale of Faubourg Pavé at Verdun.

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
