In 1916 Edward Pigot decided to do his bit for the war and volunteered for the army travelling to Attleborough to sign up. He was mobilised 2-Nov-1916 and spent time in 339 Siege Gun Battery before being transferred to 325 Battery. His unit was sent to France 12-May-1917. On 26-Mar-1919 they were employed detonating munitions. A detonator exploded injuring Edward and a colleague. Edward helped to bandage the arm of his companion and get him to hospital. Edward died of his wounds 21-Apr-1919 which included a fractured skull. Full records of the event seem to have been lost in the withdrawal of the Army from France and subsequent disbanding of 325 Battery.
It was not until 1920 that his wife Nellie was given a pension of 26s 8d plus 10s for their daughter, Eileen May.
