  • James, just like so many young men died too young, he joined his brothers in WW1, Thomas John Cook, David Clarke Cook (My Grandfather), William Alexander Cook who served in both WW1 and WW2, and Charles Hamilton Cook. All except one of men were wounded one or more times during their service on the Western Front two of these men were listed as killed in action but for what ever reason the telegrams were not sent to their family. The events that they witnessed and lived through would have changed all of these men indelibly. I just wish that I had asked more questions when I was younger.
