FRICOURT

My grandfather was batman to Lt Col Sharp and every Christmas up to the mid 1930's Mrs (Lady) Sharp used to send him a few pounds and a Christmas cake.

I have tried in vain to find details of the family, where they lived and local newspaper obituaries to the father and son. Last known address was Wimbledon but the Libraries Dept there have no trace.

Lt Col Fredrick Leonard Sharp CMG , 39th Brig, RFA. KIA 13.8.16 age 49. Burried Danzig Alley, Mametz. CMG 1915 after 30 years in army. My grandfather was also wounded around this time.

Son : Lt Fredrick Arthur Hamilton Sharp, also 39th Brig, RFA. KIA 30.10.18. Burried La Vallee- Mulatre Comm Cem Ext, France.

Can anyone help please.

Charlie,

You will find a photo of Lt-Col Sharp in the Sphere of 7/10/16 p18. Unfortunately I do not have a copy to hand but some other forum member might oblige.

I have been researching a 2Lt William Dunlop 51st Battery 39th Brigade RFA KIA 30th October 1918. In his records is a letter from Mrs (Lady) Sharp to the family of 2Lt Dunlop and a picture 2Lt Dunlop's grave, both who were both killed by the same shell, to his family on a visit in 1919.
