Huthwaite Online WW2 Remembrance

Able Seaman C/JX 316751 Alan Llewelyn Blount was born Q4 1922 in Huthwaite. Father Thomas was born in Mold, Flintshire, Wales, but was just 2 years old when 1881 Hucknall-under-Huthwaite census identifies his Blount parents living in Allsops Yard, Chapel Street, more familiarly known as Pudding Bag Yard off Market Street. Coal miner Mr Thomas George Blount married Miss Christina Stones from off Wrights Yard / Station Road, Huthwaite, Q2 1904. Heading their 1911 New Street household is coal hewer Thomas George 32, with wife Mrs Christina Blount 26 mothering Elizabeth 5, Alice 4, Elsie 2, and George 11 months.

Younger son Alan Llewelyn eluded next 1939 census. That addressed parents 107 Chesterfield Road, closer fathers work role as Water Inspector. This can only presume Alan had already made a career choice previously joining the Royal Navy.

Able Seaman C/JX 316751 Alan Blount was serving aboard one of the Royal Navy Fairmile B-Class Motor Launches (ML 366) under Commanding Officer Lieutenant LR Burness RNVR, aged 21 among other crewmen who drowned 25th December 1943.
