  1. His younger brother Frank William Bluemel served with the Heavy Section MGC. He commanded the tank Cognac on 15 Sep 1916 during the first tank action at Courcelette.
    He was badly wounded on 14 Nov 1916 near Beaumont Hamel which meant he could not serve with the tanks and therefore was attached to the Ministry of Supply for the remainder of the war
