Further down The Lanes

Further to my earlier Blog posting which showed a post card from Arthur Lane to Nana I have since found out when he died. I got some information about the Lane family from a cousin (Geoffrey Lane – the son of Thomas Warden Lane) a few years ago and upon checking that I find that Henry Arthur Lane was born 1895 and died whilst serving with the 5th Gloucestershire Regiment on The Somme. Ronald Edward Lane was born in 1899 and died in 1917 whilst in the merchant navy in the Med.

This is a photo of Cyril Lane with Mum on one of the occasions we visited him in the early 1970s. Even then his eyesight was not good and he was pleased to be taken around the Cotswolds for the day - I think the spot is Lower Slaughter.
