Sheffield Evening Telegraph 15th July 1916 Edwin and Noel Inman The list of officers and men from Sheffield and district, who were killed or wounded in the advance which commenced on the morning of 1st July (battle of the Somme ) continues to grow and each day brings new names and photographs. Mr and Mrs Edwin Inman of Knowle House, Norfolk Park Road, Sheffield had two sons who took part in the operation, Lt Edwin Inman and Pte Noel Inman, both are in the Lincolns, and the Lt was wounded while Noel has been missing since 1st day of this month. Lt Inman was with Messers Cammell Laird and Co at Cyclope works and Pte Noel Inman went into the army after leaving Dunstone College. An officer friend writing to Mr and Mrs Inman expresses the hope that the officer son will soon recover and that the news may be received of the other boy. He states of the Lincolns on 1st July " The men were splendid and the officers led them fearlessly, they faced the most intense machine gun fire which has probably been experienced in this war without flinching"
