Folks,

Whilst researching the above gent, this reference came up. He would have been 50 when war broke out and died during the Great War "of natural

causes" in Eastbourne.

I think that he would have been told old to enroll or sign-up ...but ....... can anyone verify that he saw no action during the Great War? Or did he?

He was born 28/4/1864 at Kilburn. Educated Harrow School and played cricket twice for England. No mention of military service.

Might have served in Boer War

The only B. GRIEVE I can see in the I - London: (West, South West & North London) is B. GRIEVE Leading Aircraftsman, RAF. Served 1916 - August 1919. 7, Garvan Road Hammersmith, W6.

An M. GRIEVE of the same address volunteered in 1914. Invalided out of the Army 1916, with frostbite.

Does this sound like the right family?

........

M & B are the only GRIEVEs on page 137 of the National Role. (GREGORY to GRIFFIN).

If he was an officer would he have been on a different page?

Sorry for the break, lunch called.

The National Roll only lists the surname and initials.
