Laurence (Laurie) Joseph HUSSEY was born in 1896 in probably Albert Hall Mansions, Kensington, London. He died in 1970 in London.
World War I military records (attestation, discharge and pension papers) were located for Laurie, who lived at 110 Baron's Court West in Kensington at the time of his enlistment in January 1915. The records tell us that Laurie was a fitter by trade and was 5 feet 11 inches tall with grey eyes and black hair. He was sent to France with the Royal Engineers regiment in April 1917. However, only two days after his arrival he "fainted on parade following heavy march with full pack up hills" near Rouen and it was discovered he had "advanced valvular disease of the heart". He returned to England for treatment but was deemed unable to return to military service and he was given a discharge from the army in March 1918. Laurie subsequently worked as a sales manager. He never married.
Electoral registers tell us that Laurie was living with his mother and sisters at 57 Gunterstone Road, Hammersmith in 1927 and 1929. In 1941 he lived at 31 Westleigh Avenue in Putney where his brother Bob had lived previously; by 1948 he was living at 8 Hazelwell Road in Putney and was still at that address in 1966.
A Laurence J. Hussey, born on 2 September 1896 is listed in the 1939 Register as a guest at The George Hotel, The Bridge, Walsall, Staffordshire. His occupation was "Traveller Engineers Stampings & Drop Forgings". As this Laurence appears to be the only single Laurence/Lawrence Hussey of a similar age to our Laurie in the entire Register I think it likely that this is our Laurie.

Philip worked for The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) prior to enlisting for service in World War I. He was sent to France as a rifleman with the Queen's Westminster regiment and died from wounds sustained in the Battle of the Somme. His injuries had not been life-threatening, but conditions were such that he developed gangrene and died in a British army hospital in Rouen. He is buried in St. Sever Cemetery (not the adjoining St. Sever extension), Le Grand Quevilly, Rouen (Plot B, Row 19, Grave 3).
Philip's name appears on a World War I memorial plaque on a wall of Brook Green Church in Hammersmith where he had been an alter-server. His name is also included on a bronze panel at Victoria Station in London commemorating members of LB&SCR staff who were killed in the war.
Philip's mother, Jane, always carried with her the official letters regarding her son's death and was distraught when her handbag, containing the letters, was stolen. The thief must have realised their importance because some days later the letters were returned to her through her letterbox.
