George Henry Tickner RFA (10676) may be another service number out there for him aswell he was discharged I think in 1918?

Mornington Tickner KIA 15.9.16

Albert Tickner RFC?

Any help would be gratefully received on the above or any Tickner links

Hi CT-Guards,

I'm not sure if you have this information or not but the MIC indicate that they have 273 Tickners listed. This is the link http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documen...&mediaarray=*

Also the CWGC has 66 Tickners at this link http://www.cwgc.org/search/SearchResults.a...7&send.y=12

The information about Mornington at the CWGC is:

Unusual name. Would they be any relation to a Michael Tickner who was the leader of Bromley Council in the 90s and later?

Hi there,

None that I know of but I am hoping to put together some of the Tickners during WWI (far fewer of us in them days).

Cheers for now

Hi there,

Thanks for your help, Nelsons was useful, and a further look showed G. H. Tickner RHA 93902.

Cheers for that.

There were quite a few Tickner's in Dorking around the time of the Great War. There are four on the Dorking War Memorial.

L/8163 Pte Arthur Tickner. 1st Btn, The Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment.

25622 Pte Ethelburt James Tickner M.M. 2nd Btn, Grenadier Guards.

G/1869 Pte Joseph Tickner M.M. 7th Btn, The Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment.

T/4010-T206625 Pte William H Tickner. 2/4th Btn, The Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment.

I have a few details on all these men.

I believe that one branch of the Tickner family were involved in brewing and inn keeping in Surrey. There was a brewery called Lascelles and Tickner if I remember right.

Hi

Unfortunately the only Tickner I know was a WW2 man who served in the Navy with my grandfather aboard the Flower Class Corvette K212 HMS Hyderabad. He was a Charlie Tickner from Bramley, nr Guildford, Surrey.

Hello Ther,

You are quite write, the George H. is my grandfather. There father George E. when registering the birth of Mornington misspelled his name so he became registered as Morinton' but he was always called Mornington to the family as he was named after Mornington canon a famous jockey at the time.

Not a very educated lot my ancestors.

However Nelson, George, Albert & Mornington all fought on the Western Front during WWI.

Cheers for that anyway.

Hi

P/JX176783 Able Seaman Cyril " Charlie " H J Tickner

Mentioned in Desptaches 1942

Citation reads :- " For courage and attention to duty when the ship was attacked by enemy aircraft during a convoy. At 2006Z on 25th May 1942 while HMS Hyderabad was escorting convoy PQ 16 a Ju88 was seen coming out of the sun on the port quarter, diving at the ship. Fire was immediately opened with the pom pom. This made the plane swerve as it was releasing it's bomb, and it missed the ship by 50 yards. At the same time another aircraft came up astern and machine gunned the ship."

Charlie lived in Eastmore Road, Bramley. As well as being an AB on the Pom Poms and on the Depth Charges he was also the Ship's Barber, he is seen here with a client in a 1943 picture taken whilst escorting a convoy between Alexandria and Gibraltar.
