Thanks so very much. Well worth waiting for. My great uncle and aunt’s son, George Victor Watling, is listed. He died as a stretcher bearer just a week before the Armistce. Will humans never learn?

Hi Super, Sid Jary was a relative


on my mums side. Don't know if you have seen the attached, my sister is researching the family tree and found all this in ancestry. Sad to say after his heroics, Sid was himself killed not long afterwards.

Hi Tresagreen.Syd was my nan's (Violet) brother.Sadly my nan passed away when i was very young and it's not something that has ever come up in conversation since i've grown up so finding this citation etc fills you with pride.

As you know super, I grew up two doors away from Violet. I can see her now :)

Hi Super, Syd was my 1st cousin, twice removed. My Grandad's mother was Mary Jary, who married Mr Thurston. Glad the info was useful for you, as you say it fills you with pride. Apparently after he was killed, another young man's father wrote to Syd's parents,to say how grateful he was that Syd had stayed with this man's son when he had been wounded and comforted him until he passed away. He was a great lad for 19 years old. T. .... Bit more info, Violet and Syd's dad Thomas, was brother to my Grandads mother Mary, in other words, your gt grandad and my gt grandma were brother and sister, so you (whoever you are) are very distantly related to me, poor soul :lol: Syd is also listed on a war memorial at a place called Vis-en- Artois in France.
