    Default Ernest Robert Sillett

    Hi. Iíve joined in the hope to find any more info about Ernest Robert Sillett. He was my mums cousin killed in 1940. I have some basic information but wondered if anyone would have any more details maybe about his specific role etc. My daughter has been asked to find some info on a relative who was killed in Ww2 for a school project. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Rob,

    Welcome to the forum.

    If you type "Sillett" into the site's google engine (top of page) several hits come up.

    But this is what you want: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16687690. TNA charges a lot for copying but there are sites who charge 10p/page.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Thanks for that. Iíve managed to find a couple more snippets of info. It seems the records arenít digitised but pages can be obtained. What would be the likely additional info if any in this document ? Cheers

    Hi,

    Sgt J Tomlinson
    Sgt G J Devlin
    Sgt E R Sillett

    Sgt H Day buried Humberstone Church yard near Leicester
