ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Gordon Report 22 Oct 2004 22:11

Seeking family connections for Lawrence Edward Sinclair ('Les') COX, b1918 Westminster, d1996. Joined Royal Navy as Artificer, but invalided out with TB following battle of River Plate. Les's father Frederick COX, Captain Grenadier Guards, probably died 1917-8 in 1st war prior to Les's birth, leaving him to be brought up by his mother, Irene Daisy COX (maiden name unknown) in Donaldon Road, Kilburn, London. Elder sister left home when young and went to South Africa? Les married Barbara Walker 18/12/1943 in Willerby, Kingston-upon-Hull, divorced in 1947, with son John. Married Isabel Bassett Popkin in 1950, and I was born in 1953. Any traces?
