  • I am the grand daughter of your sister Constance Lillian (Mollie) Cole (nee Furze). On 11 November 2013 I went on a day tour to Belgium from Paris and I prayed for you. I lit a candle for you and your brother James Henry Noakes who died 2 days before you, as you know. Rest in peace. Know that you are not forgotten. Thanks for giving your life to give us freedom. Much love to you. Ann Cumpstone
