JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Unusual name - SCKKOOL #general

A First World War soldier who was killed while serving in the British army
was Pte Garshum SCKKOOL. I have found nothing about him so far except that
he was born in Russia and lived in the East End of London. Both of those
facts plus his first name (Gershon?) suggest that he was Jewish, but his
surname is interesting. The spelling is that given in two official sources
bur I wonder how it was pronounced?

In my list of deceased Jewish soldiers of WWI I have him in my
**Unconfirmed** list, that is of those for whom there is no independent
confirmation that he was Jewish apart >from circumstantial evidence, in this
case name, bithplace and residence.
