Katherine's, an English church in the city. He married Phoebe Relton, and returned to the UK in 1913. When war broke out, he joined the Queen's Victoria Rifles and became their bandmaster. While on active service, he sent manuscripts home to his friend Gustav Holst.

He was killed by German sniper fire on the Western Front, while helping recover casualties. He was buried at Crouy. Coles' work was "rediscovered" in a 2001 recording. His music was used as the opening and closing title music for a documentary series entitled The First World War. The piece of music was Cortège, arranged by Orlando Gough.

Cortège is one of the two surviving movements of a suite composed by Coles called Behind the Lines. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
