Private Norman Victor Lloyd of the I/6th Battalion, The Manchester Regiment, died 27 May 1915, the 15th member of the IEE to die in World War I. 
 


N V Lloyd entered the Municipal School of Technology, Manchester, in 1903, with a Manchester Corporation Scholarship and took the 3 year course in electrical engineering under Professor Schwartz. He then became a ‘College Apprentice (Electrical)’ with The British Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company. Following termination of the apprenticeship, he was engaged by the British Westinghouse Company, and appointed a Correspondent in the company’s Sales Management Department.
 
Upon declaration of the war in the summer of 1914, N V Lloyd relinquished his position in order to serve in the Army. By May 1915 after a brief spell in Egypt Norman’s Division was sent to the Gallipoli Peninsula. On the night of May 27th, his Battalion went forward to dig a new line of trenches within a short distance of the Turkish position at Krithia; he was hit during the advance to the site of the new line and mortally wounded. He was placed on a stretcher and whilst being conveyed to the Regimental Aid Post succumbed to his injuries.
 
Private Lloyd’s obituary was published in the IEE World War I Honour Roll and these details have been reproduced below.
