  • This is a possible relation to myself. But what I have found is that Stanley Fellgett who was also killed in the second world war and came from Wadringfield Suffolk, is George’s brother. Stanley was married as was George. But what is so heart breaking is what their mother and father went through losing two sons. Also there are two widows who had to grieve . We must remeber all who made the ultimate sacrifice
