Remembered Today:

Lt Henry Edward Curtis RE


Recommended Posts

Curtis, Henry Edward dob 24/02/1889, baptised at Stanton St Bernard, Wiltshire, born at Honey Street (Wharf) Stanton, Wiltshire, 22/03/1889, KIA (drowned) on 21st Feb 1917, son of GEORGE EDWARD (Innkeeper) AND FANNY CURTIS nee Swanye, OF WILLOWMEAD, CRANLEIGH, SURREY[1] Civil engineering student in 1911 census.  I know that Lt. Curtis was serving with 117 Railway Construction Coy RE and left Stravos for Salonika by boat when it was torpedoed and he drowned.  I have looked in the HMSO 1919 publication British Vessels lost at Sea and there is no mention of any merchant shipping lost in that area on the date.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what ship he may have been on?
