Captain Staunton

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know, please, who Captain Staunton was? He was working in the War Office at the end of 1914, but in what capacity I do not know. He may have been involved with the Casualties Department.

 

Belay that. I've found that his name may have been Stanton and that he was a retired officer clerk, responsible for all correspondence with Cas. 2.

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Do you mean Capt (Retd) H J C Stanton, who headed MS3 in 1914 ?

If it was Maj. Harold James Clifford Stanton, M.V.O., then his funeral report from the Gloucester Journal of Saturday 5 March 1927. He died on 22 February 1927.

Hi Charles and Harry

Yes, he's the one, thanks very much. The Gloucestershire connection helps to explain how he knew a bereaved mother I am looking at.
