GD Charlton was a former Manchester FC player and alumnus of Selwyn College, Cambridge. He served as a lieutenant (and acting captain) in the North Staffordshires, and died during the First World War. Charlton was wounded in France in the spring of 1917, and consequently missed his sister’s wedding. After returning to the front, he was wounded again the following spring, this time fatally. On the 27th April 1918, he relinquished his commission due to injuries sustained in action. It is likely he died shortly after.
