    In January 1944 while at Hawarden David Greville-Heygate wrote to his parents about Albert Makin Pollitt……"I moved into Pontie’s room, and am sharing it with Williams. Poor Pontie, he’s lost two brothers in this war, his wife is about to have a baby and now he is due to be posted overseas."

    I can find no information about these brothers and wondered if you had more information about T.U. Pollitt and if he had brothers.

    Pollitt Albert Makin (45604) RAF career.

    Motherbird, Hi

    Possible (rpt possible) brother for T U Pollitt is:-

    Births Q4 1905
    Pollitt, Stanley, Farnham 2a 124

    but only account of same Reg District (not got MMS until 1911!). He doesn't come up in the LG in the right time-frame (or, at least, I can't make him come up!! Subtle difference!!)

    HTH
