Jack52. Now for more information for your Dad.
The Wilcox family he asked about were my cousins>.My Mothers eldest brother Richard married Mary Donoghue and they had six children. Tommy, Margaret, John, Horace, Joseph and Bill. Bill had a nasty accident on the Screens at Bryn Hall Colliery and suffered a lot afterwards.
Horace was similar age to me and was awarded an MM during WW2.
My Mother's youngest brother John Edwin, Served in WW1 and was awarded the MM and Bar. He Married Mary's sister Kit,and emigrated to the US in 1923 on the liner Tirana
which was later renamed the Lancastria and was sunk off St. Nazaire in June 1940 with heavy casualties.
Jack there you are with a bit for your Dad to absorb.
