The Common Room / Re: What did you do on Armistice Centenary Day?

Hi River Tyne Lass.

No, I march with former colleagues from the RAF Squadron I served with. Even more poignent this year with it also being the 100th anniversary of the RAF.

It is always a very humbling experience.  Did you manage to get tickets to march past?

I was privileged to be able to march past the Cenotaph in London. 

A proud, yet bittersweet moment, remembering all who gave their life but, in particular, remembering nine of my own friends who were killed in more recent times.

Hi Carol.

Don't know whether it would work, but have you thought about a reverse image search?

There's a few out there, but try this one:https://www.tineye.com/

Good luck.

Cracking photo, Lairdy5.

What a fantastic effort from everyone.  The fact that people are so willing to help is what makes this brilliant hobby so enjoyable.

Well done, all.

Hi Kate,

I'm sure you have this already, but have you contacted the page editor (bottom left of page) to see if he has anything additional to that you already have?

The Common Room / Family History Magazine - John Henry Loft notes
« on: Wednesday 11 April 18 19:47 BST (UK)  »
Hi all.

I was out and about and reading an article about a family history magazine that was offering the notes of (I think) the Grimsby MP John Henry Loft (1769-1849).  As this chap is my wife's 4x G Grandfather, I would like to establish which magazine it was so that I can order a back issue.

Has anyone seen this (it was a recent issue, I'm sure)?  If so, could you please let me know.

As an aside, Wikipedia shows him as being known for corrupt politics! Nice to see that over the years, we've made progress, eh?  :-\

Thanks, in advance.

Thanks MaxD.

That's a very comprehensive and useful reply.  I shall pass this on to my friend who, I know, will be delighted and grateful.
