Can you remind me please, if it has been established, where was Edith Kate MAHON, in 1916, when she was made aware that her son had been killed?.

Was Edith Kate still touring as a professional musician or was she settled somewhere?

I can only assume she was in the States. She was in Philadelphia performing in June 1915 and a music teacher in Manhattan in 1920. I can’t see any travel documents back to London in that time.

Added: in the 1920 census she is “widowed”. Otherwise she’s been recorded as married or divorced in previous records

I have found a man born in Fulham on the same day as Richard and died in Gallipoli, called Lionel Gordon Forrest. Richard’s name was Richard Lionel Gordon Smith. Could be a coincidence or could be the same person. His father is a J E Forrest (John Edmund maybe?) living in Johannesburg. Lionel Gordon Forrest was in the NZ forces. The ionic did make its first main stop in South Africa.
Sorry I can’t attach the records as the image is too large.

Just added: John Edmund Smith’s mothers maiden name was Forrest. Makes sense that he adopted that name for him and his sons.

That is a really great find.  Well Done.  The digitised files at Archways NZ were readily available. 

MMN as Forrest... 1 + 1 = dots joined up.   :D

Also, the J E Forrest documented as his father is a John Edmund Forrest born in New Malden, Surrey living in Cape Town.
Lionel Gordon died on 8/8/15 at Chunuk Blair. Gallipoli.
