Richard Buckingham said

"My great uncle Ernest Christopher Buckingham. Private 9991 Ox & Bucks Light Infantry. He is mentioned on the Menin Gate memorial. Brother to Shadrack “Jack” Buckingham who used to live at 1 Spring Cottages, \Primrose Lane in Weald.
Grampy Jack then named his eldest son Ernest (Josie and John Buckingham’s dad), and gave my dad, Charlie, the middle name of Christopher."

Helen Cadd said

"He is also my great uncle. This is very poignant as my nephew has just taken part in a remembrance assembly at Bampton School today. (2018) Would it be possible to have a copy of these? He will also be laying a wreath on behalf of the school on Sunday at Bampton War memorial, although I'm aware great uncle Ernest is named on the Hailey memorial."

Richard Buckingham said

"Recently visited Hailey war memorial where Ernest Buckingham is remembered. What I hadn’t expected to find was two further relatives(?) also on the same memorial. I have no idea yet how Ellis Buckingham and A. Stanley Buckingham fit into the family history."
