The Common Room / Re: Can anyone read latin?
« on: Tuesday 06 May 14 15:45 BST (UK)  »
Thanks Book, I think you are right & it was just written next to the wrong Mary....I was getting all excited then for a minute. It is a bit strange that the marriage I have for Mary and John Douglas happens at St Nicholas church on 31st Jan 1916, I will have to go & see if they had a second RC service.

Thanks again ;D

The Common Room / Can anyone read latin?
« on: Monday 05 May 14 23:52 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone help me with my GGrandmothers baptism record? For some reason there is some writing in latin on the register (it's a catholic baptism) The first part is crossed out but the second seems to refer to her marriage to George Douglas in 1916, what really interests me is the crossed out part as the wording is the same as the second and if it is then it refers to a marriage noone knew about and may point towards my grandfathers unknown father (it is dated Feb 1911 & he was born in Jul). None of the other entries on the page have notations like this so it is a bit of a mystery as to why it's there.

All help is much appreciated.

Thanks Spikey, have discovered that CRU is the Civil Resettlement Unit. I'm not at home at the moment but will scan & post the section later.

Hi everyone,

I have just received my grandfathers war records and would like a little help deciphering them. The MOD sent a list of abbreviations but these are not on them

x (ii) list & x(iv) list
No 1 I.B.D.
No 1 C.R.U. /5 corps
granted S.P.P.
I.R.T.D. (or I.R.I.D)

I know he was wounded but there is no mention of what the wound was, it just states that he was transfered to a casualty clearing station then onto a general hospital. Is there anywhere I can find this information?

Thanks in advance for any help
