  • Edgar Godfrey Cuthbert Humphries was my maternal grandfather. I have his war records, and also his diary from WW1, which tells me he was gassed in Saillie in the month of August. He never fully recovered and died 31st August 1928 when my mother was 4 years old. He was my grandmother's sweetheart, and a much loved son and father.

  • My mother was Mary Edgar Ryan (nee Humphries) who was Edgar's daughter. Unfortunately Edgar passed before my mother was born so she never knew her Dad other than from the memories her Mother and siblings told her.

  • My uncle's first given name was Edgar, not Edward. His actual army files show that Edward has been replaced with "Edgar". He is my uncle who died eleven years before I was born and I was given Edgar as my second name in memory of him.
