Is that a real name or an Ancestry transcription?

We have a Lord Tom Tyler Spoors, or how about Timothy Toy, or Lancelot Dumbling.

All lads who served from Seaham in CoDurham.

Regards

John

Is there a completely independent source for that second name 'Tyowhell', because it looks remarkably like 'Tyrwhitt" on the MIC to me?

Siege Gunner, Sorry wrote down Ancestrys interpretation, not mine, it is as you say. Think I might send for his birth cert just to be nosy. Ralph.

Adjuvant's fourth name looks more like Luttrell to me and I agree with Tyrwhitt.

This does have a WW1 connection...

A retired soldier who became a shopkeeper in Aberystwyth devised a scheme whereby money was raised to send comforts to local Other Ranks/Ratings. His fund ran from at least early in 1915 to the War's end, and large quantities of tobacco and other goods were sent out, eliciting lots of grateful return letters from the boys (many published in the local press).

The soldier's name? Ex-Guards Serjeant-Major FEAR !

He lost one of his own sons in the conflict, and by rumour killed himself not long after the end of the War. The letters - thousands of them - have been preserved at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth.

I always feel a bit sorry for Corporal Christmas Holly Aldous of the Norfolk Regiment who died on 3 September 1918. Bet the poor chap was ribbed mercilessly about his name!
