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.
