I'm hoping that one of the very clever Genes community can help.
This link is to a picture of part of my father's WWII service record.
He lived at this address with his parents in 1941, and try as I might I cannot figure out what street this is.

Thanks NanaSue. I've already done that.
All I am waiting for now is for my daughter back home in NZ to scan me a copy of a picture that i think may well have been taken outside.
tthe picture is of my granparents and my father's sister and the house number is clery visible. . <3
