One Comment

  • Kindly note my mother was Ethel Marjorie Fulcher born 1915 to Horace and Dorothy – thus Ethel M Fulcher not Ethel K Fulcher. Also I have a photograph of Horace, Dorothy and their 3 daughters Dorothy, Elsie and my mother Ethel – he was killed shortly after it was taken – his daughters were all under 5. I also have photos of Horace’s mother Louisa and father Horace. I do not know of any of the people pictured on this page – how do I post the pictures I have on this page.
