Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / benjamin russell tasker
« on: Monday 04 May 20 17:28 BST (UK)  »
 what with this lock down.having more time to go over certain family  members. just read a repport of my Benjamin in the hull daily mail Thursday 14th November 1912.
 A remarkable case of   erroneous  identifaction is reported from Selby on Wednesday. a mans body was recovered from the river ouse .the  body was identified as that of Benjamin  Russell tasker . a Selby joiner who had gone missing for some time. on Monday the 6th November a very much decomposed  body was found at hoden .no clothing or other articles was on the body. but were certain resemblances in the features which warrented the  brother and brother-in-law  in arriving at the conclusion .that the body was Benjamin Russell tasker. was buried as such. it now appears  that with-out a doubt a mistake was made .a  coroner has been acquainted with all the facts and a inquest will in due course be held.
 the Sheffield daily news
 a body was recovered from the river ouse at Selby yesterday was belived to be Benjamin Russell tasker  who disappeared a month ago. this body had clothing .a knifeb.a watch and tobacco pouch  which  brother and sister identification  prove be on doubt was the real Benjamin Russell tasker .and the body at   HOWDEN .was some unknown person . 
 not found any inquest results yet.
 am wondering if have two people in one grave now.  michael

 my dads unit was feeling a bit tired .and weary.after a long day.so out went the order.see if can find any-where to put our heads down.were in France.off went a couple of soldiers.after a while.back they came.found a possible place.officer was told.lead on.soon came into a clearing.imposing building greeted them. told two men to check building .and see no traps.about.front doors found to be open.shrug of shoulders.in they went.search building went out the order.and see if any food about.even drink.well search resumed.when a noise was heard faintly.below.every-one went quite.
find out what that noise is.order went out.no-one moved.turned out my dad.and is mate were picked to look.after a while.found a door leading down to what seemed like the cellars.my dad said you go first.my dads mate said.think am daft.your the corperal.down they went.seemed like ages.
 reached the bottom.not much light about.but noise clearer. moved along.quitely.noise much louder.and came to a corner.peered round my dad did.and tried hard not to laugh.said  to is mate.seems drinks off the menu tonight.some troops have found the wine cellar.and are snoring it off.wonder what lot these are.my dad went and told the officer.and .was told to go and find food.
 he would have words.with the lot down stair.
