Ernest Pateman

Ernest Pateman was born at Chailey in 1890; his birth registered at Lewes in the June quarter of that year.  He was the youngest child of Charles and Susannah Pateman of Chailey. 

His name appears in a special list of attested men published in Chailey Parish Magazine in January, March and April 1916.  Next to his name, the words, “medically unfit” are written and it appears that he did not serve during the First World War. 

Ernest's three older brothers,Charles, Alfred and Thomas, all served during the First World War. His cousins Percy and Walter Pateman also served their King and Country during the Great War.
