FA Martin joined The Buffs in April or May 1912 and was posted to the 1st Battalion. He was aged 21. On the outbreak of war they were in Ireland and they returned to the UK before proceeding to France on 7/9/1914. They fought on the Aisne and then moved north for the 1st Battle of Ypres. Martin was killed during this battle in fierce fighting at Radinghem near Armentieres on 20/10/1914. There were 50 other men from the 1st Buffs who were killed on that day and none of them have known graves. They are remembered on the memorial at Ploegsteert.

He was born in Hawkhurst. His mother and father were living in Battle, Sussex after the war

I can't find a TW Hind in The Buffs during WW1
