Notes
  • We have seen reference to him both as Robin (William Arthur) Farmiloe and Robin Farmiloe. We have a newspaper cutting in our gallery with the former, and the attached photo was originally provided simply as Lt Robin Farmiloe of No 11 Commando.
  • Entry in London Gazettes (Supplement 34693 page 6496)  "2nd Bn. L.R.B., Rifle Bde.—Cpl. William Arthur Farmiloe (96875) (late Cadet Lance Corporal, Winchester Coll. Contgt., Jun. Div., O.T.C.) to be 2nd Lt. 2nd Sept. 1939."
