Roy and Mabel were my great grand parents through Winifred (Bubbles).

I've just started to track down the family, but my mother (Pauline Rothwell, nee Dobson) tells me that when they were living in NSW in 1947, it was Herbert who sat them down to tell them of his son-in-law Roy's death - she would only have know Roy a few months since they arrived in Australia in Nov 1946 and all she recalls was that he coughed his lungs up - she thinks he was gassed in the trenches in WWI.

I've attached his medal record from service in the Royal Horse Artillery.

Apparently Roy and Mabel's wedding was spectacular - quite the society event.
