Mystery of baby Joy is solved
Thank you for publishing my letter last week about the mystery if bay Joy Dennett.
Lady Teviot, from Burgess Hills, who is an expert in such matters kind contacted me the day the paper came out and resolved my query.
For those who might be interested in the name of baby Joy was wrongly transcribed on records and should have read Ivy, born in 1910, so Joy never existed.
Whilst I am on the subject, if any family with Royal British Legion associations have any remembrance of my grandfather John Dennett's Boer War or First World War I would be grateful if thy could contact me ...
John Dennett, who died in 1943, was a former standard bearer for the Legion, but I am having difficulty tracing his movements in the two wars mentioned,
I am indebted to her (Lady Teviot) for her assistance. I am also grateful to Middy reader Richard Webb for other information he provided about my family.
