Good evening everyone, our local BBC news program Spotlight has just had an article on about the above lad. He died in the Battle of Jutland on the HMS Southampton. His dead mans penny plaque was found at the tip in Dorchester and is at the museum. Currently they have not found any relatives. Anyone up to the challenge?

World War One / Dorothy Vlieland
« on: Monday 01 February 16 12:09 GMT (UK)  »
Morning everyone, I am hoping someone may be able to guide me in the right direction. The church I belong to has Dorothy Vlieland on our war roll of honour. We know she was a nurse, however she died in Exeter in June 1917. I am wondering if she may have been evacuated back to a hospital locally from the Front. Is this likely.

We are currently ploughing gently through my father in law's things,as well as finding loads of info on my mother in laws Haymans . Today we found a photo of a soldier dated August 1917,it can only be one person , my husband's great uncle Sidney who was killed the following May! He looks so like my father in law ,it's amazing.

Cornwall / Are these your heros

Camborne Rugby Club are planning on remembering these men at a President's Dinner soon. The men are Captain William Blackwood who was a Dr.,Private E.Fletcher who as far as I can tell was a stretcher bearer and Sergeant J ( ?John) Phillips who was the referee at a match at the beginning of WW 1.I think the last one was connected to the school of mines. This hunt is for my daughter who helps coach the younger kids at the club. The Captain survived but,have'nt found the others as yet.
Many thanks
Barb ps the club are keen to find descendants so they can be invited.
