Norman Cook

Second Lieutenant Norman George Cook was an English officer of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1897, at Steyning, Sussex, the son of German-born shoe manufacturer Samuel and Matilda Cook (née Silverstone), of Hoxton. The younger Cook boarded at Polack's House, Clifton College and was to have studied medicine at Caius College, but instead elected to apply for a commission in the British Army. This was achieved after a month's training at Cambridge.[1]

In January 1917, Cook went to the Western Front, where he served with the 6th Battalion, The North Staffordshire Regiment, attached from the 4th (Extra Reserve) Battalion. He died on 28 June 1917, two days after his birthday, while advancing towards German trenches.[1]

He is buried in Loos British Cemetery.
