Buckinghamshire / Re: Still searching for Ann TRUSS

It might possibly be Wickam in Berkshire ? I suppose Berks and Bucks might sound the same to a stranger.

Thank you so much for your help . All is explained. Well nearly! Barbara

Thank you everyone for all your input.

 MaxD --there are two different cards for Harry Pellant in the International PWA The first  one is for Pellant Harry O and the other Pellant O H One card comes under the Pegram etc index and one card under Pell etc. Not sure why! I hope this makes sense? Barbara

name   H O Pellant   68950  7 R Fusrs 

The details above and below him are for men at Cambrai same date 24 /3 /18 which was where a relative thought he was wounded.

The date stamp at the top of this form is 20 AOU 1918- don't understand this either (as see below)
he was repatriated wounded from Germany 2 June 1918 with a shoulder injury

Thank you very much . I guessed most of it but it is easy to make guesses and go off at a tangent.
I wanted to be clear as the relevant column for 5 a/b says St Simon  24 /3 /18  and (c) Kohle West Front. and I can't find a reference to St Simon. Any ideas where to look next?

Can anyone please translate these headings from POW papers 1918 . Or would it be better if I posted this on the Handwriting Deciphering page ?

Cheshire / King's School Chester during ww2
« on: Sunday 25 February 18 14:44 GMT (UK)  »
My brother attended King's School Chester briefly during ww2 . I wonder if anyone knows whether the school was still in the original buildings near the cathedral at this time or was it moved elsewhere before its final move to the Wrexham Road ?
 I am making a collection of photos of places where he lived, went to school etc   I looked at the online school archive catalogue but couldn't work it out. Any help most welcome as I was born at the end of the war and we moved away soon after that,  so I have no memories from that time.

There are Plesteds in Buckinghamshire. I think in Chesham and definitely around Aylesbury. When I was a child, Mr Plested was the stop me and buy one icecream man, on a motorbike and sidecar.
