Posted by Peter James Rudden

My name is Peter Rudden and my father’s name, James Rudden whose father was Captain Bernard Rudden of the Border Regiment and who lived in Carlisle Cumbria. My father was born in 1911, in Alton at the military base.  His father was married to Magaret McGragh and he died in about 1924. I think one of my grandfathers brothers was Reginald Rudden, and Bernard’s father, I think, called Charlie Rudden. Can anyone help further?
