You have bracketed his first name Walter - was he generally known as John. 

Were his parents Walter & Anna.
Yes parents were Walter and Anna   down as just john on 1911 census. Not mentioned in his dads obituary in 1937

Have you his exact date of birth, to look for him in 1939?

Also, which paper did you find him in?

Added:
I can see the newspaper article referring to Mrs Lane and a son and another son in Dundee.  Is this definitely him - were there any other sons?

There were just two sons. Yes that's the report. I dont have his exact dob just AMJ quarter of 1893.

Hi . In a newspaper report in jan 1918  mrs lane stated her son was broken from the war and sent to a military hospital in dundee.  Walter john lane was born in wellington Somerset in 1893. He was her oldest son..  I cant find any trace of him after this mention. Does anyone have  info on this thank you

 I'm try to find out what happened to (Walter) john lane born april 1893 in wellington Somerset. I know he served in ww1. In a newspaper cutting from jan 1918 his mother stated he was broken and sent to a military hospital in dundee.  I cant find any trace of him after the war.  Thank you

I have tryed to search for them in the 1939 reg but with little success.  They came from a big family that all reused the same names so difficult to work out which are the correct ones and who were cousins. Was hoping a fresh set of eyes would see something I hadn't or even know of the family.

Use freebmd to look for marriages and deaths

www.freebmd.org.uk

To find additional children  - use the maiden name search facility here to look for a birth reg then check freebmd for a death - registration is free if you don't have a current login id

As most of them were born before 1912  they dont have mother maiden name to search. I do have birth certs or baptism records for most of them. It's what happened next I'd like to find out

A number of articles in the Devon newspapers. An item in the Exeter & Plymouth Gazette, 1 Nov 1935, mentions 4 of the brothers, a "relative Fred", an "Uncle (Edwin)" and a "Daisy, prisoner's wife" (ie. Edward).
Can I ask where you found that so o can look it up thanks
