Note on Husband: Ernest Sydney GREGG

My grandfather was Ernest Sydney Gregg born 22 May 1885 in Lambeth (95 Clapham Road), father Harry was then a bookseller. Ernest married Mary Ellen O’Reilly (dob 3.2.1893) (various spellings) in January 1913 in Cork, Eire. Ernest went on to become a Major (having joined the army as a ‘drummer boy’); he had been captured at Mons and was a prisoner of war for the duration of WW1, awarded DSO and later MBE. His service records were lost in fire in WW2 so we don’t know anything more about the DSO, the MBE was for setting up training in WW2.1
