Wow! I have just signed up to the British newspaper, and am reading through this.
I never knew anything of this, and this would explain a lot of the mystery!

Would you then say that my grandfather's birth certificate that states his mother as Ellen Linfield, that it is in fact this lady? He was born in 1935, in Worthing,

FreeBMD shows the motherís maiden name on the 1935 Worthing birth as Lingfield rather than Linfield, but if you have that birth certificate and it shows the parents as George Lamont Horn and Ellen, then yes it does seem to be this couple - mother was actually Nellie Margaret nee Greenfield.

You can see the 1939 Register on Findmypast, but details of the child born in 1935 will be redacted. Search for George or George L Horn with the birthdate he apparently thought he had (3 November 1903) rather than the 9 December 1903 as you have found on his birth certificate (an odd discrepancy in itself).

I've just read through the article! Unbelievable. Bit blown away at the moment!

That would be my tree. Although I have done research on a few generations up, I have only the birth certificate to link the two together (yes, not fantastic research and no proof whatsoever, but I was hoping to find more information from doing it, but failed!).

I am still confused with the name difference of William Horn on birth certificate and John Horn on marriage certificate. His birth date is the 3rd November (not the 9th December, my mistake!).

Thanks

Violet appeared to travel to Taltal, Chile to meet up with William Horn, who was there for work. She appeared to return to Scotland, and then travelled to Australia, but there is no mention of him after the marriage.
