Edward Nicklen served with the RAF during World War Two and was based in Gosport. His wife, Gwendolen Alfreda Nicklen, nee Flude (1922-1999) was a nurse based in Brighton.

The couple got married in 1941 in Hangleton.  Edward Nicklen has contributed letters and a photo related to the wedding to Letter in the Attic.

Photos from World War One

Edward Nicklen’s father-in-law was Frederick George Flude (1895-1934). He left nearly 100 photos of World War One soldiers, most of which appear to be taken on the south coast of England.  A selection of these have also been scanned and contributed to Letter in the Attic.
