Rothschild was quite a common name and probably had nothing to do with red
For example, in the First World War three men named Rothschild served in the
Canadian army. One was a mail carrier (presumably postman), another was a
mail order manager, the third was a mining engineer. In the British army 14
men named Rothschild served, of whom six were members of the banking family.
The other 8 were presumably ordinary people.
