In May 2020 I posted a blog that related to Fred Hunter (1887-1916) who died on the Somme in 1916 and is remembered on a memorial in Crookes Cemetery (Sheffield).
The researcher who so kindly supplied me with the information has contacted me again with information relating to Fred's nephew, Douglas Harry Rawson who served in the British Army Service Corps in World War 1
Douglas was the first child of Ann Hunter, Fred's elder sister. He was born on 11th May 1893 at 72 Burns Road Crookesmoor Sheffield and baptised on 2nd June 1893 at St George Church Brook Hill Sheffield
His father - Henry Anthony Rawson b 1868 (Sheffield) - died 1904 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
