    Will get back if I find the answer

  • In your “When the Lights Go on Again” project, you have an entry, “T26 Sam King (Southwark)”.  Could someone confirm whether this is Sammy King a local boxer, WW veteran, please?  I have two generations with this name, senior born Deptford; and I am related to both of them.

    P.S.  clicking on the ‘privacy statement’ doesn’t take me to the relevant page.
