Lieutenant Gerald Beaumont Ash
Life dates
12 Oct 1882 - 29 Apr 1957

Gerald Beaumont Ash was a dentist in Brockenhurst. He may have served in World War One, but the London Gazette records for his name could possibly apply to someone else with an identical name. However it seems likely as both his sons became officers, though one, Roger, died in September 1943 in Palestine while serving with the Royal Artillery. His other son served in the Indian Army being awarded an MBE at the end of the war as well as being Mentioned in Despatches. His grandson won the Military Cross in Northern Ireland.
