I know a little about the Tolson Museum as I have corresponded with two distant cousins who are directly descended from Whitely Tolson - he was the father of Robert Huntriss Tolson and James Martin Tolson in whose memory Whitely's brother Legh donated his house to be converted into the Museum. (extract from letter from Chip Tolson.

 

2nd Lt James Martin Tolson joined he 74th Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery in April 1916 but was wounded near Ypres in February the next year and came back to England for hospital treatment.

 

He returned to France but was gassed in June 1918 near Adinfer, yet still returned to his battery in July 1918.
