CWGC: Herbert Colin
From The Wardrobe, Home of the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment (Salisbury Museum)
www.thewardrobe.org.uk/
Enlisted on : 23 Oct 1906, aged : 18 years 1 months
The Swindon Advertiser 6th October 1916 - "Sergeant Colin Brind left England with the Wiltshires shortly after war was declared, and was in the thick of the fighting ... a fine athlete, he was chosen to carry a dispatch, and taking a short cut back, but alas! he never arrived. He has been missing since October 1914. Any information would be gratefully received by his father, mother and his wife."

A William Frank Brind born in 1880 enlisted in Canada
William F could be the Rifleman William J Brind (F and J can be very similar) who died in 1916. If so that might explain why his younger brother Frederick Charles called his first son William Frederick (b. 1918). FC's younger brother Herbert Colin was also killed in the First World War and FC called his second son Herbert Charles. Interestingly FC was living in Summerland (the place where Mary Brind was supposed to be living on WF's attestation form) when he died in 1954. According to the form WF was single in 1915 and it seems unlikely his mother would have come to Canada without his father, so how did Mary Brind get to be listed as next of kin? His mother was buried in Aldbourne cemetery in 1924 and his father was buried in the same cemetery in 1927!















Found in the Brinds group on Facebook (supplied by Jo Hutchings). Described as Molly Brind (but no-one ever got a death certificate under the name Molly Brind), wife of Theo Brind, mother of Mrs Evans. I think this is really Mary (Belcher) Brind wife of Thomas Brind, called Molly because Thomas's first wife was a Margaret (therefore Molly).















Possible picture of Thomas Brind found in the Brinds group on Facebook (supplied by Jo Hutchings). He appears to be sitting in a very similar chair to the one in which Mary (Belcher) Brind was photographed. Perhaps the two photographs were taken at the same time?
<hr> The Aldbourne Cemetery has this memorial for Ethel Nancy Brind widow of Edward Harry Evans. She lived to be 97 years old. (24/July/2014). See tree.,
