(1923 - 1999)
Father*Sydney Ernest WICKS b. 1889, d. 1961
Mother*Rose Emmeline RUST b. 1891, d. 1972
Norman WICKS (1923-1999) c1941
Norman WICKS was born in Edmonton, Middlesex, on 8 January 1923.1

He joined up in about 1941 and by May 1944 was Acting Sub-Lieutenant (Air Engineering) in the RNVR. After training at the HMS Kestrel shore base he joined the small escort carrier HMS Chaser (Jan 1945) to deliver aircraft to the Royal Navy Pacific Fleet. He was then transferred to HMS Indomitable, where he witnessed the kamikaze attacks on her in May 1945 and the relief of Hong Kong in Sep 1945, until being demobbed in Apr 1946.2

When HMS Indomitable was part of the force accepting the Japanese surrender of Hong Kong in September 1945, he managed to find his relations (Eric William SHARP, Peggy Christine SHARP, Robert John MINNITT CMG and Annie (---?---)) amongst the internees, and invited them aboard for a meal. As Robert had no shoes at the time, he gave him a Navy issue pair to wear.3

Norman died on 22 July 1999 in Harlow, Essex, at age 76.4 His ashes were interred at Torteval, Guernsey, Channel Islands.

Percival Bernard Weston WICKS1

(1886 - 1954)
Father*William Augustus WICKS1 b. 1849, d. 1899
Mother*Sarah Ann HOLMAN1 b. 1851, d. 1931
Percival's birth was registered between October 1886 and December 1886 in Isle of Wight, Hampshire.1 Percy renamed himself to Percy Bernard WESTON (sometimes WICKS WESTON) at some time before the 1911 census (where he is listed as WESTON). He married using this name, but it is interesting that his probate record identifies all the variations. Quite why he did this is unclear, but see also the similar actions of his uncle Sidney Buckingham WICKS, in New Zealand.2
He was listed as a lodger in Barbara Jane FROST's household in the 1911 Census at 98 Pollock St in Govan, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, under the name of Percival WESTON. He was an engineer fitter, and claimed to be 29 years old, rather than the correct 24. This made him closer in age to his landlady, who he would shortly marry.3

He married Barbara Jane FROST at 102 West Nile St in Blythswood, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, on 29 June 1911. The marriage entry is significant in that Percy claims his surname is WESTON (and therefore his father's surname was WESTON, rather than WICKS). Both parties lied about their age - Percy claiming to be 29 (actually 24) and Barbara also 29 (actually 38!).2

He was appointed administrator of Sarah Ann HOLMAN's estate in London on 24 August 1934.4

Percival died on 13 August 1954 in Elie, Fife.5
