I think the name is Codd.  Or possibly Code.

Hi Eadaoin - is a good free piece of kit but you need to be careful where you download it from as there are a lot of dodgy versions about. is a good site which I've found reliable so far,  and it has lots of free stuff to download.

The easiest way I can see to remove the stain is either to do a cut-and-paste with a little piece of material close to the stain so the stain is covered up.  Or alternatively a gaussian or fragment blur might do the trick.  There are some useful tutorial on YouTube, I believe, which could be of help.

Kind regards

I'm not sure that birth certificates were required for recruits during WW1 as the attestation papers ask for apparent age or some such wording, rather than real age, or evidence of such.  Which probably accounts for why so many 15 year olds were shipped out to an early death.

The Birth Index gives Edward Percy's place of birth as Brentford, Middlesex.  Any idea what father's occupation was at the time?  That might give us a clue.

One from me too.

I, too, am struggling to imagine what the pages might look like so is there a chance of scanning a page, which would give us something to work from?

And there appears to be some very worrying machinery in the background too......   :o
