The Blackmore War Memorial has an entry for a survivor of the First World War. But what was his name?
Alfred Leslie Jasper, of Wenlocks, was fairly easily found in the records but C.V or G.V. Jasper proved more difficult until the 1911 census was consulted. Here we learn that Alfred Leslie and Charles Victor were brothers.
