World War One / Re: Joseph Buckle - Lookup

Hi Tyrone.

Joseph Buckle was my Great Grandfather through Winifred Buckle marrying Jack Grozier, my maternal Grandfather.

I may be able to fill in some blanks for you. Certainly I have a few photographs which I plan to scan.

My mother, who knew her grandfather very well, is now too old and infirm to remember much about his history. The family stories I remember include him being a horseman and his family in the Vale of Evesham were horse dealers I believe. Joseph was in service and was chauffeur to the Sainsbury family. He was in America for a period of time, I think before the Great War. I do not have a record of when he married Lillian or when he moved to the Godalming area and, sadly I know little about his period in the Army. I am told he was badly gassed on the Western front which affected his lungs and made him an invalid in later years. We had his medals but these were stolen some time in the late sixties. They were a set of three or four, including the usual campaign medals (Mons star, British War medal and Victory Medal). I would like to know more about Joseph's war history if you have any information.

Let me know if you would like to have photos when I scan them.
