Our seven great uncles ..all brothers fought in WW1 . We have little knowledge of records and where they served during the conflict as their time progressed on the Western front. Any information would be great.

Gus was in Trench Mortar Battery..3 battery. Noted in London Gazette

Ernest Elijah Letts,. Worc Reg 8453 and Flying Corps 61600 came home. Ernest held the 3 medals 14/15star, Victory, Gen Svc. A The brothers did a great service for the country and great honour to our family. We cherish the memory of those who perished and remember them with constancy.
