Michelle, I take it that this is why you can give such excellent directions to Lone Tree. Not Forgotten. Pete.

Michelle,

I am preparing an article for the local magazine about those on the War Memorial in Castle Combe in Wiltshire and would like to include information on Private Ernest Young, who is shown as 2 Gloucs. Is this the same man?

It is the same man, he is shown as 2 Glosters on the Castle Combe memorial and his date of death is wrong on the Stow on the Wold memorial

Michelle,

Thanks for the correction. I am currently writing the article on Ernest Albert Young and would like to include a photo. Would you have one that you would give me permission to use please, with acknowledgement of course? I will submit it for publication in the Honeycomb and on my Wiltshire OPC page http://www.wiltshire-opc.org.uk/genealogy/index.php/parish-directory/item/307-castle-combe

I also notice that your interests include a Fred Young of the 6th Wiltshire and wonder if there is any connection between them?

Hello Sue

The only photo I know of is a rather bad one from a newspaper, and is included in Nick Christians book and Richard Broadheads book on the war memorials of Chippenham and local area. We must have a copy on file somewhere, but it might be worth contacting Richard. He put an exhibition on in the church last year. Fred Young is we think a relative from Grittleton but we haven't done that much delving on him. I believe Rowland Pullin is also a distant relative. I have plenty of photos of Ernests grave and also of the grave of Stanley James should you want to use them.

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for the leads in your reply, which I will follow. I would be grateful for your photos of Ernest's and Stanley James' graves and your permission to use them in my article. My email is sstenning@hotmail.com.

I have been unable to find Ernest's service record in the "burnt documents" on the National Archives website and have tried to see if any of his brothers fought in WWI but have only found a possible William. Are you able to confirm these results please?

Sue
