The Seale-Haynians Alumni Club Committee of the former Seale-Hayne Agricultural College would like to trace the descendants of some of the soldiers named in the Pathé Bros film made at Seale-Hayne on the treatment of shell shock victims /convalescent war neurosis patients. We want to focus on tracing the affect the war had on the lives of ordinary people locally.

We intend to have a commemoration next year in 2014 of Seale-Hayne's contribution to the war effort in WW1 as a military hospital for servicemen suffering from hysterical war neurasthenia.

If you are one of the descendants or know someone who is on the following list please do get in touch by direct message or through we'd like to hear from you.

2) Cpl. Anderson, (aged 27)
