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.
What a wonderful tribute to all those that served in World War I. Just a possible correction. The letters posted May 14, 2007 with two letters. One to Kate where did not have an address to give her to write back dated The same day 1917. The second letter to Jack could not have been written the same days as he gave Jack a mailing address to send letters to. So the letter to Jack must have been wriitten sometime previous to the letter Kate because he gave Jack the address to the West York and he told Kate that he was transfered from the West York to ninth Bat York & Lancaster so the 9th Bat York and Lancaster May14, 2007. Weather it is correct or not it is a very moving site. R. K. Staggers
