    Thankyou...I never even made the connection...might well be a two generation book...I have found out that Kinmel was a massive camp duriing WW1, and it seems that the original owner was a member of the Public Recruitment ( Recruiting) Board attached to the South Wales Borderers... 119 Sqdn was a light bomber sqdn based at Duxford, but was only ever in training and never became operational..it was disbanded in either 1918 0r 19.. Dont you just love history??

    Do you have a friend with Ancestry who can do some research? Maybe a household with two Thomas Herman's?
