It was not unusual for families to have 2 or more sons join the forces.
A fine example of patriotism is that furnished by the family of Mr. and Mrs Alfred Greenley, 22 Old Maltongate, Malton; who have five sons in the Army four of whom are on active service 'Somewhere in France.'
Malton Messenger, 15th January 1916
Lieutenant Claude E. Abbott, son of Mr R.T.G. Abbott, of Malton, was awarded the Military Cross
