This site commemorates the men and women of Collingham, Linton and Micklethwaite who served during World War 1. Today we especially commemorate Captain Eric Donaldson of the 1st London Field Ambulance Royal Army Medical Corps who died on this day in 1970.
Thompson, Ernest Charles

We have been unable to precisely identify this man.

The name of Ernest Charles Thompson appears on the electoral roll of Micklethwaite in 1915, and in 1918 he is listed as an absent voter on account of Naval or Military service. It is interesting that on this electoral roll, the next entry is for a Rose Thompson. By 1919, Ernest and Rose appear again on the electoral roll for Micklethwaite, but Ernest is not marked as absent, so it appears he must have returned from his Military Service.

In 1920 and in 1921, Ernest and Rose are on the electoral rolls for Kirk Deighton (Ingmanthorpe), but after 1921 we have not been able to find them in the area.

There are 9 men named Ernest Charles Thompson, or EC Thompson, and another four named Charles Ernest Thompson, in the medal rolls for the first World War and we have not been able to precisely identify the Micklethwaite man or locate his service record. It is also possible that he did not qualify for any medal and may not be identifiable in this way.

If you are able to help us identify him, please contact us.
