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.
However, I have to disagree with your assumption that this letter and the letter to Jack were probably written on the same day. He gives his address to Jack, yet not to Kate because he will be moving soon. Why tell one he is moving on, but give the other an address? Also, in Kate's letter he says that he did write to Jack and Jack seems to be getting on well. I read that as he recieved a letter back from Jack in response to his letter.
Thanks for the comment. I may well be wrong. I've tried to work out the dates of the letters without a date but need to put in more time to be absolutely confident. I'll have a look at this one - eventually! BL
