I have visited the area a few times and made some enquiries to senior residents of the village, some of whom had a few memories of the old hotel but the site has long been re-developed. A ┬┤photo / postcard of the original house is attached as well as…

    That Minnie only found out about Kathleen through a misdirected letter when AEW was involved with Tregantle Fort:-
    This, whilst a good story does seem extraordinary.

    By this stage i.e Tregantle Fort comes into the story in 1920 according to MoD archive information - a good few years had passed since the relationship with Kathleen had started,…

    4. [S114] Other Researchers - Peter Worrall.
      In our archive, we have a hand written letter from AEW to Kathleen sent via BEFPO whist he was at the Western Front for his period of duty in 1916 whilst seconded to the Royal Fusiliers. Written in pencil of course as all officers correspondence was - ink fades of course over time - he just chats away about the day to day stuff of a regiment in the line whilst missing his sweetheart.....who was at this time pregnant with Jean who was born that December.

    5. [S1] Certificate, Marriage, Surrey N.E., Sep 1938, vol 2a p412.
      Jean lived at 5 White Hart Lane, Barnes
      Glyn lived at Red Lion Hotel, Barnes - he was the hotel manager

    6. [S11] Personal Knowledge.
      Jeremy remembers when Glyn left. It was a permanent separation rather than divorce.

    7. [S11] Personal Knowledge, Jeremy guessed date - they weren't actually married.
