Hi, Could you please try for me and these are the details Henry George Elliott b 1899 Lambeth I am sure my dad said he lied about his age to go into the army though as we know he was in WW1 and WW11 Thanks Debs x

Madeline, Thank you so much for your time in having a look for Dudley Blake PRIOR. I am sorry I couldnt pin down where he was living at the time of enlistment. I cant even find his first marriage, nor the births of his two sons. The WH Prior Kennsington could be his uncle but I will not bother you in trying to trace that one, as I was really after Dudley. You have been most helpful, Thanks Janis (NSW Australia)

Hi Madeline Could I please have the details of the L Burke in Kilburn? His father was possibly living in the Hampstead area by then, so that one might be a possibility. Thank you so much Lisa xx

Madeline - many thanks for your time. Regrettably, no Huse. Howard


Gillian Report 17 Jan 2006 22:44

Hi Madeline, thanks for trying to find my Henry Smith. He could have come from either the Old Kent Road or Camberwell. The only thing I know for sure is that he served in the Devonshire Regiment and then transferred to Royal Warwickshire Regiment. I would be really grateful if you could spare the time to do another look up on this for me. Also many thanks for finding my Thomas Wisbey. You have given me information that I would never have known about him. Look forward to your reply for Henry Smith (my grandfather). Regards Gillian

Hi Madeline Thanks for your offer, if your not overwhelmed with request could you have a look for my Norris family from Bermondsey Willilam james charles Edward Much Appreciated Ann


Sandra Report 18 Jan 2006 01:58

Hi Madeline Thank you for your kind offer. Could you see if you have anything on Charles John Bowyer, born in Mile End Old Town, London who would probably enrolled from the West Ham, London area since that is where he was living at the time of the War. Hopefully you can find him since I have not had any definitive luck with the medal lists. Thanks for your time. Sandra from Ontario, Canada
