      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

Captain Staunton

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know, please, who Captain Staunton was? He was working in the War Office at the end of 1914, but in what capacity I do not know. He may have been involved with the Casualties Department.

 

Belay that. I've found that his name may have been Stanton and that he was a retired officer clerk, responsible for all correspondence with Cas. 2.

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Do you mean Capt (Retd) H J C Stanton, who headed MS3 in 1914 ?

If it was Maj. Harold James Clifford Stanton, M.V.O., then his funeral report from the Gloucester Journal of Saturday 5 March 1927. He died on 22 February 1927.

Hi Charles and Harry

Yes, he's the one, thanks very much. The Gloucestershire connection helps to explain how he knew a bereaved mother I am looking at.
