A family at war

As happens occasionally, I was looking for something else but nevertheless this caught my eye:

fourteen brothers and sisters involved in the war effort

Son of Alfred Pope, J.P., F.S.A., and Elizabeth Mary Pope, of Wrackleford House, Dorset; husband of Sybil Pope, of The Dring, Queen Camel, Somerset. One of eleven brothers and four sisters, all of whom (except one son predeceased) fought or worked for their Country in the Great War.

Methinks Elizabeth deserves at least a MID for her part too. I guess with their Sirname, birth control was not an option.
