And if you look at the actual image - RG9 334 folio 86 page 27 - there is another instance of the same addition on that page, plus 3 on the previous page, and others on earlier pages.  ;D

I think that it actually says "Surrey" which is the county associated with Lambeth.  :-\

1939 Register entry - don't forget that there is a name (No: 3 in the household) that is not available to view.  It is possible that that person is an older sibling of Lilian.  :-\

Forgive my ignorance, but would Harry have received a pension at all?

Enlisted 7 September 1914 - discharged 26 September 1917, aged 25 years 10 months as wounded - Silver War Badge 138,919.  Image available on Ancestry.

Not sure why you are being so pedantic with spellings, which is a modern trend.  Our ancestors weren't quite so "entrenched", even those who were educated.

The wonderful thing about genealogy is that we can all learn something new, and see things in a different light.
