In Reply to: Re: DIPLOCK John 18?? SUSSEX? by Don Diplock of 54

Yes, he did. He was born on April 9th 1892 at Burgess Hill, sussex. He had four brothers, Alec, Gordon and Cecil and four sisters, Edith, Ethel,Elizabeth and Gladys, but I gather his mother had three husbands. As each husband died she invited a lodger in, and in due course married him (I am quoting my father-in-law's memoirs). Three of his brothers survived the 1914-18 war, and one, who was a regular soldier (9/14 Lancers) was killed in action in 1915. Another uncle (Cecil) was killed in a road traffic accident, riding a motor cycle, near the Victoria Inn, Groombridge, in May 1930 at the age of 32. Any further questions - let me know and I will ask my father-in-law.
