World War One / Re: WW1 Military Prison’s UK.

Yes, I remember reading something about Australia signing something about their ‘deserters’.  Would there be instances where British military prisoners would escape a death sentence or where AIF would be given one?!

ADD:

Do you think that 1 year for being AWL sounds fitting?!  I think it was about his third time.

Thank you both.

Would AIF been treated the same as a British Soldier?!

Hello

Iím following an Australian Soldier who was AWL for 5 months (a repeat offender) in France 1918.  He was sentenced to 1 year in prison. 

Looks like he was first sent to No. II (Eleven written underneath) Military Prison.  The record then mentions Carnarvon Prison.  After 10 months he was released from HM Prison Exeter.

Could anyone elaborate on these gaols, what would of happened, and what would life of been like as a deserter in Gaol.

Much appreciated.

There is an 1851 census for a Joseph and Maria, Dudley Rd, Tipton.

Joseph, 46, Boat loader, born Tipton.
Maria, 45, born Solihull Warwickshire.
Abel, 4, born Tipton.
Henry, 2, born tipton.

Seems this Joseph may be the son of Abel.  There are a few Josephís about in the Whitehouse family.

Mine are from Rowley Regis.

Could it be anglicised or was he born in a country that was once Russia but now is not?!?!  Perhaps Scandinavian?!

I was going to suggest GRIMA as well.  I worked with a GRIMA once who was from a Maltese family.
