William John attempted to enlist, or was drafted in 1914 but they wouldn't have him because he had an extensive cleft palate, which meant he articulated quite inaudibly making him useless as a soldier. It probably saved his life. He was 5'6", weighed 144lbs, a little over ten stone and had a 36" chest (or 39" expanded), when he was 22 years old. See documents
