My Great-Uncle Basil and I share the same middle name 'Fullelove' and we share the same engagement ring that my wife now wears, as it was bequeathed to me by his brother Courtney. Great-Uncle Courtney served with the Royal Ulster Rifles. My Mother and I visited Basil's memorial 5 years ago, and I will be forever grateful to those that died and survived fighting WWI.Thank you to BN for your informative post, and thank you to for this site.
