Born in Wandsworth to Alfred Charles Hammond and Edith (nee Smith), Anthony lived with his parents and younger brother Charles Herbert Hammond (1894-1915) in Wandsworth.
He served with the 12th (Prince of Wales’s) Royal Lancers which saw action on the Western Front throughout the war. Today its successor regiment, the 9th/12th Royal Lancers, marks “Mons Moy Day” every year, to commemorate the last time its predecessors charged at the enemy using lances in 1914.
He is remembered at the Cambrai Memorial at Louverval in France, which honours those who fell in the Battle of Cambrai between November and December 1917. His mother Edith was living at Hill Crest, West Hill, Budleigh Salterton by 1923 and lived there until her death in 1942 when she was buried in St Peter’s Cemetery, Moor Lane.
