Nine more histories have been added,  all relating to the Lines family. They are:
Frederick A Lines
Henry W Lines
Owen Lines
William G Scott
Ernest  R V Cowley
Albert Bazeley
Edwin W Bazeley
Walter Frank Bazeley
Arthur Bazeley

As always, the experiences of each serviceman vary more than you might expect and each has his own story. This group includes an underage marine and a prisoner of war who died four days before the war ended.  I have also been adding information onto my database on several men who were born in Cottingham but moved away well before 1914. One of them emigrated to Australia and may be the oldest serviceman so far found, enlisting one month short of his forty fifth birthday.

So many servicemen, so little time to write them up!
