Born in August 1887 in Awsworth Notts, to Henry and Sarah Lamin. Elder Sisters Catherine (Kate), Mary Esther and Sarah Anne(Annie) and Elder brother John (Jack).
Educated at Awsworth Board School, just outside Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England.
I served with honour in the 9th Battalion York & Lancaster Regiment seeing front line action in Flanders and Northern Italy from the end of 1916 to January 1920.
The information that you are providing is facinating. I hope you are considering putting this all in book form. You write with such warmth and colour, I look forward to finding out more as the weeks go by!
Just a quick comment, in this entry you write "Harry mentioned it in his letter to Kate on 13th May." I wanted to look back at it, and read the letter about 10 times and couldn't find any remarks about it. It's actually mentioned in the letter to Jack that is below the one to Kate.
