Hubert William Dibben was born in Sixpenny Handley, Dorset, on 27 Feb 1890 and baptised there on 20 Apr 1890 the son of Robert William Dibben and Eliza Jane Dibben (Nee Card).  He lived all his life in Sixpenny Handley apart from an unknown period of Military Service.   He had enlisted with the Royal Field Artillery (Service No. 128590) and later transferred to the Royal Army Ordnance Corps as a Private (Service No. 047304).  It is thought he served in the UK only and was discharged on 28 Mar 1919 suffering from Bronchitis and Sciatica (both attributable to his service conditions).  Regrettably no medal records have been found for him.  He had married Elsie Hansford in Bridport, Dorset, during 1918.  By the time of the 1939 Register he was living at St. Marys Farm, Chettle, Sixpenny Handley, Dorset.  He died there on 2 Jan 1963 and was buried at Sixpenny Handley on 8 Jan 1963
