John Valentine Green was born in Wavertree, Liverpool on 14th February 1895. The son of Thomas Green and his wife Sarah (nee Hewitt). He was baptised at All Saints Church, Stoneycroft on 14th April 1895. The family were then residing at 13 Duoro Place.

The 1901 Census shows the family are living at 12 Rathbone Road. His father Thomas is shown as born in Liverpool in 1854 and his occupation is as a Foreman on the Railways. His mother Sarah was born in Prescot in 1858. He has two elder brothers Thomas Joshua and William. 

By 1911 the family are living at 176 Rathbone Road. Both parents are still living and all three boys are at home. John who is now 16 is working for a paint manufacturer.

He enlisted in Liverpool joining the 20th Battalion of The King's Liverpool Regiment as Private 23018. At some point, probably having been wounded, he was transferred to the Lancashire Fusiliers. His medical records show he was admitted to 139th Field Ambulance on 06/10/1917 and transferred to the 1/3 East Lancs Field Ambulance on 09/10/1917 and discharged to rest.

John was killed in action on 22nd July 1918 with the 1/7th Battalion of the Lancashire Fusiliers, aged 23,  and now rests at Bertrancourt Military Cemetery in France where his headstone bears the epitaph:

"TIME CHANGES MANY THINGS BUT HIS FOND MEMORY CLINGS FOREVER".
