    This request has been posted on behalf of Mr Johnstone:

    I am looking for some help to reunite a letter and photo, dated 23rd June 1918, from the First World War with a family with Hexham connections. The letter, 3 pages of informative text and photo was sent by Sergeant Ernest Dodd from France to a family in Nottinghamshire area thanking them for some socks which had been sent. Ernest was born at Hallington in 1892 and survived the conflict. Probate records show he died in 1955 at The Green Wall, Hexham (possibly The Green, Wall Hexham). Ernest was also living at tis address in 1939. Names in the Probate record include Agnes Robson (wife of Joseph Murray Robson), Arthur Dodd, lorry driver and Charles Simpson, foreman engineer. At this time I have not been able to establish children from his marriage in 1930 to Sarah Ethel Armstrong (1897 – 1942).

    If anyone one can identify a living relative I will arrange to have the letter and photo delivered to them. When complete, Sergeant Ernest Dodds story will included on the North East War Memorial Project website

    Thanks for any help. I can be contacted on

    Derek Johnstone

    Dear Mr Johnstone
    My name is Norman Dodd. I recently discovered an email that you had written to The Hexham Historical Society in 2020 about Sergeant Ernest Dodd. He was my fathers uncle. As far as I am aware I am his only surviving relative.
    I would love to chat with you about the letters that you have in your possession. If you can find the opportunity to call me I am on 01670 513434. Or of course you can reply to this email and I will call you back at a time convenient to you.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Norman Dodd

    I recently sent the above email direct to Mr Johnstone but have received no response. Concerned that it may have landed in junk email so I am sending it to you in the hope you can contact him.
    Many Thanks
    Norman Dodd.
