    We can eliminate these 2


    Births Jun 1889 (>99%)
    Willett John Charles Wolstanton
    1889 to 1952


    Births Sep 1896 (>99%)
    Willett John Charles Lambeth ->
    1939 Register London, England -> Army Service Corps WW1


    There is a 2nd Lt J C Willett in Machine Gun Corps in 1917 no further trace

    No J C Willett on 1918 Air Force List

    I am beginning to feel like this is an administrative incident that mushroomed

    Unless Commonwealth or Scottish

    Thanks
