Can't refer you to his Kew service file,where the info you need often lays,because he served after 1921,so not yet in the public domain.

Thanks very much for that. Have done a bit of a search in another media and found that Hermitage Farm in West Malling now sits at the top of Luck's Hill so must have had an impact in his local community. I think the Hermitage itself is now a school.

Thanks again

David,

I'm currently researching the careers of Col. B. J. M. Luck and his brothers - as you probably know, they were a pretty distinguished bunch. My interest in the Lucks/Lockes stems from the fact that several of them went to the same school as myself, and because my house stands on the site of their former residence in Hartlip, Kent. I've found most, if not all, of the references to the Lucks/Lockes in the London Gazette, but I'd be keen to hear if you've found any other information on them.

Best wishes,

Marc
