Robert Curwen at Mewburn Park

Does anyone out there know anything about Robert Curwen, who was a soldier settler at Bushy Park after World War I?

Sgt Curwen appears to have been there about 1920. He was actually the first to have his sugarbeet into the factory one year, but was gone by 1925.

You can read a little about his exploits in the war, when he was in the first group to embark (and that is another whole story!), on Lenore Frost's blog The Empire Called.
