Worked at the Stock Exchange and died in WW2. We think Major Lord Francis George North must be this man. Son and heir of the 8th Earl of Guildford. Service Number: 23157. Regiment & Unit/Ship Royal Artillery 144 (The Surrey and Sussex Yeomanry) Field Regt. 

North and his sister, Lady Cynthia Williams, were killed on the Dover coast near the family home, Waldershare Park, when they trod on a land mine. Lady North was with them and was seriously injured. The party were taking a walk at the time in a prohibited area, protected with barbed wire but without any 'danger' signs.
