26th August 1918
Lieutenant Henry Paton Nott SM 13th Cambridge (later Notts’ Own for both brothers)
27/4/1916 6th Gloucestershire Regiment
‘I know that the Nott brothers who were running the 13th troop were in camp at Clayhithe when they were called up as officers. Both were killed in action, they left a legacy of £200 to the troop, a large sum in those days. About 1916 the troop took the title “The Notts’ Own”; at this time many troops had similar titles but I think the 13th is the only one to still retain this after 60 years’ (Written c 1978)
