I have an Aaron Waines, b. 1 July 1867, Buckton, died 12 May 1948, Sewerby, and married Annie Elizabeth Leng, b. 23 November 1870, Flamborough, died 30 November 1937, Sewerby. Is this the same Aaron as you are interested in?

A LETTER TO FLAMBOROUGH

In response letter has been received from Aaron Waines, of Butterwick Farm, a Reserve Waggoner,

“Just a line to let you know that I am in the best of health over here. I had a letter from Tom (his brother) just before I left Aldershot and it seems as though he is having a good time of it.

There is plenty of fruit about the fields all round. The villagers are very good kind people. Cyril (Cyril Gardner, of Bempton) is at the same place and we are having the time of our lives. We are not allowed out of our ranks on the fields here unless on duty. I am not allowed to give you the address, or any particulars of where we are situated. We get plenty of good rations here.”
