Eva Cooke was the eldest daughter of John Cooke and Rose Cooke.

She had two sons:

  • Tom
  • Arthur John "Jack" Bate (2 August 1923 - 6 November 1944). Jack was a fighter pilot with the 101st Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

Jack was a fighter pilot and was shot down and killed in 1944 (age 21). I don't know how his body was recovered but he is buried in France.
