A passport issued in 1921 to Mrs E.M. Jenkin, the mother of William Gendall Jenkin, a Cornish miner who was killed in France in December 1915. These passports were issued for a limited period – especially to allow relatives of war dead to visit overseas graves. Mrs Jenkin (born in 1865) was nearly 60 at this time. Her son had died six years earlier.
We are very grateful to Juliet Jenkin, of Redruth, for the loan of this passport for our Truro exhibition and for all the information relating to William Gendall Jenkin.
