WWI related story

The 'Saving Private Ryan' mystery that haunts Camilla's family: Three brothers killed in the trenches, a fourth raring to go... but he's told - you can't go. So who gave the order that saved the Duchess's beloved grandfather | Mail Online

Nice story except the writer uses nicknames as if she was a friend.

Henry died in 9-16-1916 (aged 24)
William died in 9-16-1916 (cousin of Camilla's great-uncles) (aged 24)
Alick died 11-24-1917 (aged 23)
William died 3-24-1918 (aged 21)


Camilla's grandfather was named Roland.

The story about the Marx brothers is not entirely true, probably more of a joke. Roland's mustache pre-dates the Marx Brothers. Roland had a very thick mustache in 1924 & in 1918 already had a mustache. It is unfortunate that the Daily Mail didn't include the photo from Sonia's book which shows the 1918 photo so that the brothers would look alike.

Sonia met Roland in 1918 after the death of his 3 eldest brothers.

She used nicknames because they are the names used in the family and it is a story about a family.

The writer should have used their given name the 1st time she mentioned them with the nicknames in ( ) and then referred to them by their nicknames or only referred to them by their nickname when directly quoting a family member.

The is standard procedure in Journalism.

Terrible news ...
Such a brilliant human being. He was very close to his sisters and Charles found in him the perfect in law.
Just tragic.

I discovered this on Tumblr and had read a post just before it saying he was in critical condition and then read the next one that said he had sadly passed away. Now seeing it confirmed on BBC News. Very sad news as it was so sudden a tragic.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 19m
The Duchess of Cornwall, and her husband Prince Charles, are understood to be in Scotland.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 22m
The daughter of @TheDukeOfYork, Princess Eugenie, was at the New York charity event last night attended by Camilla's brother, Mark Shand.

Martin ‏@WindsorEditor 1h
Mark Shand slipped on the pavement whilst lighting a cigarette at an event in New York. Princess Eugenie was also at the event at the time.

Clarence House statement;
Our view

Mark had presided over an auction at Sotheby's on the day of his death it was a Faberge Egg Hunt in aid of his Elephant Charity. He then went on to a fundraising party, and on again to a bar.

Eugenie has attended two other Faberge Egg Hunts presided over by Mark in the past few months. Evidently he was a friend for her in NY.
