Horace Edgar Camm
'H. Camm' on the plaque in the village hall may commemorate the war service of Horace Edgar Camm, a cousin of Martin Walter William Camm, although his home seems to have been in Saul where he was born on 26 June 1895 to Edgar Alexander Camm, a master mariner, and Ellen Theresa (Nellie) née Harper. Horace and two of his brothers, Hedley and William, worked with their father on his trow, Agnes.
During the war Horace was an able seaman with the Mercantile Marine (after the war entitled the Merchant Navy by King George V). He was awarded the British War Medal and Mercantile Marine War Medal which confirm that he sailed in coastal waters off south and east Britain, then considered dangerous zones, and possibly further afield.
In 1939, Horace and his older brother, Hedley, were living together in Saul and working as general labourers for the RAF, presumably at its No. 7 Maintenance Unit at Quedgeley. Horace Edgar Camm died at the Gloucester Royal Infirmary on 1 October 1961, and was buried in the churchyard of St James the Great, Saul.
