Well, where has this Death Plaque come from? Perhaps it belongs to the other EP in the CWGC database and the two men have been confused? But in that case, how was the Death Plaque matched with the accompanying Everton memorabilia?

I was kicking myself for not buying - but now ... .

I am decorating the top floor of the house. I would like to go to go to Erquingham tomorrow, but all depends on how rapidly the Dulux flows from tin to ceiling.

So EP played for all three Merseyside clubs? He was not alone. But can you name who played for all three in the same week? For Liverpool on the Saturday, Tranmere on the Wednesday evening, and Everton the following Saturday. We are not talking about wartime matches.

Hi everyone, first time on the forum.
Was out with the metal detector at the weekend at a local public footpath through some trees, the path links an old pill box and a water mill.

First find was a Wood Green Football League 1906/07 players medal initials D G C.
Not more than 2 feet away was a Northumberland Fusiliers shoulder title.

Probably not connected but maybe, just maybe.

Footpath is in Smallburgh and I have found an Army Service Corps cap badge and a Mother of Pearl Sweatheart broche which was 18 inch away from footy

Not sure if this is of any interest to anyone but thought I would share it anyway.

King Regards

Can anyone please help me with information about the cause of death of SGT THOMAS CHARLESWORTH ALLSOPP (Royal West Surrey Regt att Labour Corps) who died at Norwich on March 7, 1919, aged 38.


He was a fine all-round sportsman who played cricket for Leicestershire (he was born in Leicester) and Norfolk, and football for Leicester Fosse, Luton Town, Brighton & Hove Albion and Norwich City.


I am guessing he may have been a flu victim but cannot find evidence short of getting a death cert.
