  1. My father Ernest Morton

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 28 February 1911 Hi Monica You mentiond a Brother Walter and i have spotted this that might be of interest. Gary.
  2. My father Ernest Morton

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 07 May 1914 The reason i was suspicious that some of the posts i put on were wrong is due to some such as this where Earnest Morton is followed by ( Whitley Bridge ), and the referance to his age of 17 was my estimate due to the ages that you stated. There are other people with the same name including a Vicar and a Doctor but the ages dont match.
  3. My father Ernest Morton

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 25 January 1939 Sadly the previous Two could be the wrong Earnest ( unless he came from Whitley Bridge ? ) Maybe this one is correct now i am working backwards.

    Hi Mick I have found this site https://www.treasurebunker.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1514-british-ww1ww2-brodie-helmet-maker-stamps/ it doesn't fully answer your question but does mention John Round & Sons.
