Lt Horace Cornwell, Royal Field Artillery

Chailey Parish Magazine does not have much to say about this man, noting him for the first time in January 1918 as Cornwell, Lieut H, RFA.  This information is then repeated monthly up until the final published roll call in July 1919. 

His name appears at The National Archives as Horace Cornwell but unfortunately his service record does not appear to have survived.  A Horace Cornwell with Chailey connections does appear on the 1901 census but as a fifty-one year old so this is clearly not the same man although he could conceivably be the father of Lieutenant Cornwell.
