My son is carrying out a school research project about John Pelham Acworth who was born in Kent in 1897. He served in the British India Army in WW 1 and 2 and died at sea near Singapore in 1942.

We are trying to trace any of his descendants through his children, Hugh and Caroline. We have managed to collect many old records.
