Cpl Ernest Frank Stevens, Labour Corps

The photo above shows Ernest Stevens and his wife Alice Pointing. The couple had married on the 15th December 1915 and this photo may date to shortly this.  Alice was born at Chailey on 2nd November 1891 and Ernest on 23rd December 1889. The couple had two children, Arthur and Ronald.

Chailey Parish Magazine notes a Corporal E F Stevens serving with the Salvage Corps in January 1919 but that is as much information as is given, information that is repeated up to and including the final published roll call in July 1919.
My thanks to Ernest's granddaughter, Lesley, for sending me the photograph and information about her grandparents.
