More information slowly coming to light re Frank Solley. I think he was UK born in about 1878 and emigrated to Canada before moving to US (NYC) in about 1902 and became a naturalized U S citizen after 9 years residence. Originally working as a caterer he became a butler / valet and travelled the world extensively with employers Mr Randolph and Mr Shonnard. He did appear to get 'drafted'in Nassau County in September 1918 ! He did arrive back in the port of Southampton on July 23rd 1930 whilst accompanying Horatio & Sophie Shonnard to Castle Grant in Scotland. His name crops up in several ship's pasenger lists through the early 1900's. Ultimately what became of him I have yet to find out. These things take time.
