    • The Next Of Kin of my father Marshall Jack EAGLES was his brother Sam Ernest Edmund EAGLES. The intials should be Mr. S.E.E.Eagles. I know that this is not what it says in the NOMINAL ROLLS. Public - Christine Ross - Child - 19 November 2016 - I do have copies of his Military Records and it clearly states on his Attestation For Service Form his Next Of Kin is S.E.E. Eagles. It is also clear on various other forms, eg History Sheet, Service and Casualty Form etc. I can email copies of hese to you if required.

      Also he was my Uncle Sam whom I knew as a child.
