I was also delighted when your site lead
me to my other great uncle, Pte Herbert Atkinson (6806, of the 18th Hussars)
who did return home. However I knew little about him because he died long
before I was born and even my mum does not remember him (shrapnel in his
body caused him to die early). Whilst my mum believed he was in the Hussars
(like his brother Ernest who died in Masagan in 1912) I did not know he
was in the 18th Hussars or his regiment number. So thank you for that.
