Market Lavington Museum

Ernest Hiscock again

We have already met Ernest Hiscock on this blog, as we have some of his army discharge papers in Market Lavington Museum. Besides the one in our previous blog, we have another, giving a little more detail about this man, who was born in Market Lavington about 150 years ago.

When he left the army, aged 35, he was a plumber, although he had worked in agriculture in Market Lavington before he joined up.

He was quite a short man, at 5 foot 5 inches tall, with a fair complexion, blue eyes and brown hair, with a scar by his right eyebrow.
