This bigraphy was written by Graham Taylor Paddick.

 Edward John Rutland was born on 14th August, 1900 at no. 6, Anchor Lane in Aylesbury (this house was demolished in the 1990s to make way for the Upper Hundreds Way relief road).  He was the fourth son of Frederick Rutland, a labourer originally from Stoke Mandeville, and his wife Maria (nee Wallace).  Edward attended St John’s School in Cambridge Street (on the site of what is now the BT telephone exchange) and then found work as an apprentice carman after leaving school at the age of 13.  Ten days before his 14th birthday in 1914 Britain joined the Great War (World War I) by declaring war on Germany.
