Whilst perusing the Commonwealth War Graves site for the name Norris, (checking some W.W.1. medals for sale} I came across a casualty in the Rifle Brigade, S/8487 Rifleman Charles Henry Newman- Norris. Died July 1916. He was the son of Henry Sherwood Newman- Norris. Charles had resigned a position in Tientsin to join up. Did not some other chap with a similar name once spent some time in Tientsin? Interesting.

Interesting that he did not join 2/South Wales Borderers which was stationed in Tientsin from 3 Nov 1912 until 19 November 1914.

Little known painting of "Noggs"trying to interest a fellow passenger in the AZW.

Hope you won’t mind me bringing this thread back to life - you may recall I was trying, quite unsuccessfully, to track down the elusive “Noggs” and a couple of recent discoveries has reawakened the interest...

Yes, Rifleman CH Newman-Norris was the nephew of Charles Norris-Newman and had spent some time out in Tientsin with his uncle before returning to sign up. He was turned down 5 times apparently, which may explain why he didn’t join the SWB when war broke out in 1914.

And, from what I’ve learnt about Uncle Charles, that painting might well be nearer the truth than you might imagine!
