Bank: National Provincial Bank of England

Place of work: London Finsbury Pavement branch

Died: 3 November 1917


Harold Graham Fluck was born on 26 March 1891, the son of Theodore Graham Fluck, a straw hat manufacturer, and his wife Alice Jane Frederica. In January 1908, when he was 16 years old, he went to work for National Provincial Bank of England as an apprentice at its London office. In June 1909 he transferred to London Finsbury Pavement branch, still as an apprentice. He was a member of the bank's staff sports club.


Fluck left the bank to go on military service almost as soon as the First World War broke out. By the time of his death in 1917 he was a Second Lieutenant in the Middlesex Regiment, attached to the Northamptonshire Regiment. He died in Palestine of wounds received in the Battle of Gaza on 3 November 1917. He was 26 years old. His younger brother Marcus, who worked for Parr's Bank, another of our constituent banks, had died in France two years earlier.


Harold Fluck is commemorated on a bank war memorial held at NatWest Group Archives.
