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.
Hmmm: I would think that The Royal Sanitary Institute, essentially what we would term our modern day environmental health practitioners, is now the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
God saw theirs sentiments while they were on war,God bless them
Having seen several other letters from the same time period, I can say that it was not entirely unusual for people to sign their full names or do as Jack did even to people they knew intimately, e.g., a mother writing to a daughter.
