Hubert Vinnicombe (or Vennicombe) was born in Otterton in 1888. His father, William, was a "waggoner on farm", and his mother, Emma, a lacemaker.
Hubert was the second of three children. The family lived on The Green, somewhere near the Chapel, in one of the cottages demolished in 1938. In 1901 Hubert, aged 13, was listed in the Census as labourer on a farm, but by 1911 was a baker's assistant in Littleham, Exmouth.
No service records exist for Hubert, but he was previously enlisted in the Royal Field Artillery with the service number 135663.
