Cpt Everard Joseph Lamb, Brampton, killed

  • Description

    CAPTAIN E.J. LAMB, KILLED IN ACTION. Captain Everard Joseph Lamb, who was killed while serving with the 1st Northumberland Fusiliers, in France, was the only son of the late Mr. R. O. Lamb. Captain Lamb resided at Hayton, How Mill, near Brampton, and his mother, Mrs. R. O. Lamb, has recently taken up residence at Birney Hill, near Ponteland. Captain Lamb was a director of the Cramlington Coal Co., and the Seaton Delaval Coal., and an active member of the Northumberland Coal Owners' Association. For some years he had taken an interest in politics, and was President of the Brampton Primrose League. He was recognised as an expert in the rearing of shorthorn cattle, and his valuable herd, which he inherited from his father, was well known. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 12th of November 1914. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images and have any stories and information to add please comment below. Copies of this photograph may be ordered from us, for more information see: http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt Please make a note of the image reference number above to help speed up your order.
