Blencowe Families' Association Newsletter Vol. 21 No. 3 November 2006

Another Response from the last Newsletter

My note is actually prompted by the report from Rev Mary Janet Murray. In Jack's News from Oxford, Mary Janet is quoted as mentioning a relative Thomas Blencowe, reputedly a WWI pilot possibly in the Royal Canadian Air Force. I thought I would do some checking on two sites I have been using for some WWI research on other lines. The sites are Library and Archives Canada which has a searchable database Soldiers of the First World War with free images of attestation papers and Veterans Affairs Canada which has published the Books of Remembrance honouring Canadians who fought in wars and died as a result .

I searched both databases using wildcards for spelling variations and did not find a Thomas Blencowe. However, I did find a number of other Blencowes etc., and wonder if you would be interested in a summary of Canadian Blencowes in WWI for the newsletter. I have checked back a couple of years in the newsletter and do not think this is a repeat of something already published. Marilyn Astle

Marilyn's letter leads nicely into my next article which I hope many of you will want to participate in.
