Huthwaite Online WW1 Remembrance

Private S/10771 John Burns is offered additional remembrance, although his inclusion can still only be loosely based on finding CWGS identifying this son of Martha Marshall (formerly Burns), and Horatio Marshall (stepfather), of 146 Main St., Huthwaite.

John Burns along with his mothers movements cannot yet be traced among any Hucknall Huthwaite records. Name is sadly noted more commonly registered among Scottish troop casualties. But although enlistment into the Seaforth Highlanders infantry is rare among this Notts & Derbys region, they apparently had a WW1 Sutton-in-Ashfield Depot recruiting others from local areas. That was where Lance Corporal Harry Hawksley S/22249 enlisted. His 1918 burial in that towns cemetery resulted in wounds inflicted serving the same regiment under fuller title Seaforth Highlands (Ross-shire Buffs, The Duke of Albany's).
