The Lock Brothers

Here the Bromley & District Times celebrated another band of brothers who served on the Front Line during WW2.  Their mother, already a widow, must have been beside herself with worry that she may lose them all to this awful war!


Three members of the Lock family, late of Bickey, are now of 36 Saxon Road, Bromley, are serving in H.M. Forces.  They are sons of Mrs. and the late Mr. Lock

William Lock, aged 26, is serving with the Queen’s Royal Regiment.  He formerly worked for ten years as a window-cleaner at Bickley, and is the eldest of the trio.

Aged 24, James Lock, now in the Royal Ulster Rifles were employed by various firms in the district as a carpenter before he donned uniform.

The youngest of the three is Leslie Lock (22), who was employed by different firms in the Bromley area as a labourer, before joining up.  He is now in the Dorset Regiment.
