Dates of existence
Gordon Hulley was born in Kimberworth in Yorkshire in 1888, the son of Charles Gordon and his wife Mary Ann. A draper by trade, he served his apprenticeship with E. Smith & Sons, a drapers business in West Melton.
Upon the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Hulley enlisted as a Private with the 12th battalion of the York and Lancaster Regiment. He was wounded in action in April 1916 and returned to England where he was treated at the Military Hospital, York.
After some months in York he was transferred to the Royal Herbert Hospital, Woolwich, where he came under the care of a Major Swann.
Private Hulley was honourably discharged in 1917, receiving the Silver War Badge. He later married and had at least one son.
He died in 1944.
