The Weeping Tree & The Telegraph Boy
« Reply #23 on: Friday 14 October 05 02:58 BST (UK) »
 :'( :'(  A collexction of odds & ends from different messages in 2003 and 2004:

From my "A lost Wiles of Cherry Burton" (Yorkshire:
"In 1915, when the telegraph boy knocked on the door of the old widow Mary WILES, it wa time to take a trip to the Weeping Tree....Alfred Ernest WILES...

From my "From the Brass Works to the Weeping Tree"
...all family stories must end with sorrow and pain and a trip to the weeping tree (symbolic)....The NUTT families would hear the brass trumpet blow no more for George Edward NUTT of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in 1917.
...Others to fall...J. J. RUANE, J. H. ASHBOURNE...

Elsewhere, I mentioned the case of Patrick M. NUTT, the 17 year old mess
boy of the Merchant Navy.

From the "Lost Trawler Cana"
The trawlers "Cana", "Bengali" and "Spaniard" were lost like a flash of a spark with the explosion...lost shipmates...Walter Joseph GODBOLD, Edward Cross WALKER and Tudor Alec WILLIAMS.

From "The Knock of the telegraph boy",,,Some Devon connected names
were brothers William Walter & Ernest Albert ZELLEY, William P. PARKHOUSE,
and Charles P. SOUTHCOTT...
