  • Mogg was transferred to the Machine Gun Depot at Grantham, Lincolnshire in June of 1917 and left for France in July, meeting with his unit at Passchendaele on 10 October. (Church, p.156)

    "Towards the end of August, whilst fighting in the Battle of Bapaume, Mogg was seriously wounded in action, receiving gunshot wounds to his right buttock and suffering from the effects of gas. He was transferred to No.1 NZGH Brockenhurst on 30 August. His injuries never healed and gangrene set in, resulting in his death."(Church, p.157)

    Two other Mogg sons died in WWI. Eldest son Charles Edward Mogg, Private, 32036 and Henry James Mogg, Driver, 65045. AWMM
