Little is known about Luigi Margiotti. He was born in Ripon and enlisted in Bishop Auckland.
The 19th Durham Light Infantry were raised as a bantam battalion in January 1915. The "bantams" were composed of men who were technically too short or of too small a stature to be admitted into the regular battalions. Despite this limitation they fought valiantly in all Theatres of the War.
