William Robert Douglas Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of William Robert Douglas Anstey of the Doynton Ansteys, who signed up for active service right at the outset of war and was posted to the 2nd Wessex Field Company of the Royal Engineers, suffering a horrific injury during the first week of the Battle of Hill 60 near Ypres in April 1915 which necessitated amputation of his leg….however that was not the end of his war story…

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at research@theansteystory.com.

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
