I HAVE found details of a memorial to previous masters and pupils who died in WW1 on a Penrith school (no longer there) that listed a James Kitchen, previously a pupil who perished in the war. Is there any way of confirming it’s the right James Kitchen

    Wow, thank you so much. I have blinkers on when looking for something and miss what surrounds it. I looked on the CWWG site but could only find 11 Kitchen's of any first name who died in BOTH of the wars. Drove me mad! But duh - I was only looking in England. If it wasn't for this site, i'd still be at the same brick wall I was 10 years ago
