John was likely born 8 June, 1896 in Mullolagher, near Longford town. He initially served with the Royal Field Artillery, before transferring to the Tank Corps, but was sadly killed in action aged just 21 years.
It is probable that John was a brother to William James Adams, who was killed in action less than a year later in April 1918.

|Notes:||Ancestry.co.uk states that he was born in Staffordshire, however the parish is given as Templemichael, which would suggest that he was born in Ireland instead.|
