Robert's father and grandmother had both died with the last 3 years (no doubt enabling the Ambrose Whiteman inheritance to be settled; in fact Robert sold land in Feltwell, Norfolk from his new home in Canada). This left just his youngest brother Henry and spinster sister Elizabeth farming in Feltwell. Supposed to have given money to nephew Henry Barton W. to build Gladstone Villa, which you can see here

110......Raymond Barry b 14 Aug 1917 Feltwell d 9 Jul 1940 on HM submarine "Salmon"

HMS Salmon in 1935

On 4 July 1940 HMS Salmon (Cdr. Edward Oscar Bickford, DSO, RN) departed her base to patrol off Skudesnes on the south west coast of Norway. She was sent signals on 9th, 11th and 12th July, the final one ordering a return to harbour. None of these signals were acknowledged. Later it became known that one of the signals routed her across a minefield which at the time was unknown to the Admiralty. There was also a possibility that she was attacked by aircraft, but mining was considered the most likely cause of her loss somewhere in position 57?20'N, 05?00'E. She was declared overdue on 16 July 1940; Raymond was the telegraphist on board at the time.

The wreck of HMS Salmon was located in April 2008 by a surveying vessel prospecting for a cable laying route, and the cause of her loss confirmed as hitting a mine.
