Laurence (Laurie) Hussey, son of Thomas Hussey and Mary Butler and grandson of Thomas Hussey and Anne Devine, was born in Westminster, London about 1896.
In April 1917 Laurie was sent to France with the Royal Engineers regiment but only a couple of days after his arrival he “fainted on parade following heavy march with full pack up hills" near Rouen and it was discovered he had "advanced valvular disease of the heart". He returned to England for treatment but was deemed unable to return to military service. In March 1918 he received a discharge from the army.
Laurie, who never married, lived in Putney in London. He died in 1966 aged about 74.
