Additional Entry

Driver Ernest Wilson

1909

10-May-1940

Son of Thomas and Maggie Wilson; husband of Lilian Wilson, of Brotherton, Yorkshire

This soldier from the Royal Army Service Corps died in Aalst but is not recorded at Brotherton. One possible explanation is that he was the Ernest Wilson of Bradford who married a Lilian Hargrave(s) in Bradford in 1933. This Lilian could well have been the one born in Brotherton in 1913 and who then returned to her family after the death of her husband.
