Jenny’s plea to help find more about her great uncle George from Wisbech who was killed during the First World War
A relative has sent out an appeal to find more information about her great uncle from Wisbech who died during the First World War.
George Henry Garner was killed in action on September 6 in 1917.
The only information in the family’s possession is a photograph taken on his 19th birthday in July 1916 and a postcard.
Jenny Loudon said: “We are used to seeing these young men standing proudly in uniform and I wonder if one of George, my great uncle, exists.
“I have tried to find out, but have so far drawn a blank. He was one of 11 children born to Elizabeth and Charles Edwin Garner in Wisbech St Mary.

“If there is anyone who knows anything at all about this I would love to know.
“What also interests me is whether or not any documents exists concerning his death. I have found out a lot, but hope that there is more.”

Last year she put out an appeal for information about the railway carriage in which her mother spent her childhood in Panswell Lane that she has decided to put a second appeal for information about her great uncle.
“I had such a good response from people who knew something or knew someone else who did!” she said.
