"We got a letter from his (Edward's (E. Mc....... 5051 9 Regiment Sportsman Battalion Army P.O.Kilindini)) mother and what do you think she told us. Willie Williams antie S Jane's son (Pa's sister)(Harold was called Pa) is in German E.A. She did not know with what reginement .... He is quite young too and younger than you dear."**
This suggests Sarah Jane was called Jane and had a child out of wedlock called Willie.
