    Hi Phil

    Looking at the dates you have I think Martin Mullen was my great uncle - his sister Annie was my maternal grandmother. I know little about his service life except his death affected my mum greatly as she was quite young (14) and he was her favourite uncle. I would be grateful for any info you have on him.

    Regards
    Jane

    Jane, pm on its way with contact email. In the meantime.

    Hi Phil,

    I see that this is a very old post but I would be very grateful of any information you have on Harold Durbin. He was my mother’s father who was killed when my mother was 13 months old.

    Best wishes,
    Natalie
