On 8th April 1916, in Burwell, he married Sarah COPPIN.
Until he joined the Army the family name always seemed to be recorded as MOLE, after that it is MOULE.

He enlisted in Newmarket.
Being in the Artillery and also dying of his wounds there is little chance of finding where or exactly when he was wounded. No one else from his battery died that day.
