My grandfathers brother William Henry Newey 1891-1950.

Royal Navy 1909-1921

He had a habit of going AWOL. The story was the family were told he was lost at sea as his ship had sunk. He turned up at my grandparents house and nearly gave my grandmother a heart attack, she thought he was dead. He'd missed the ship sailing and so lived.

The is one of the few of OH's unnamed photos which we have managed to identify since we started his tree:


He's Robert Henry Alexander Cotton, 1893-1960, OH's first cousin twice removed (in later years he was the spitting image of OH!). This photo was taken in June/July 1911 when he was first posted aboard HMS Renown.

EDIT: OH points out the photo wasn't unnamed - it said "Bob" on the back!! lol

This is my 2nd cousin, 3xremoved, Thackwell Gillett Smith (1862-1928) - grocer of Charlbury, Oxfordshire - in his part time job as one of the fire crew for the local brigade. I would think this photo was taken about 1912. Thackwell is second from the left.

Joseph Spiller Seldon, taken in 1917. My husband's paternal grandfather.
This is the only photo we have of him, taken a year before his death.

This is my OH's maternal grandfather, the infamous John Claud Hamilton (1895-1962).

He was born in Cork (apparently!) coming to England during WW1 and was in the merchant navy for most of his life.



This photo was taken between 1917 and 1920.
