Any relation to Capt. Samuel Blackwell, DSO, E Battalion Tank Corps, died 20 Nov 1917, commemorated at Ribécourt Cemetery, I wonder.

Interestingly I saw on Ancestry today 'Register of Soldier's Effects' and under his entry it shows his effects going to his mother: Sabina Raney.

Looking at Ancestry I found a Sabina Raney in the 1911 census with a son John Raney born 1895.

Could it be that John enlisted under a false name??
