Thanks. As a family they were pretty good at leaving Wills. They will be my backstop.

Can anyone see Claude anywhere though? That is the question.

Claude features on the Hamburg passenger list for 1925.  What I don't really understand, is that I thought the Hamburg passenger lists was for emigration from Europe, mostly to the US but I can't see any where that mentions that on the passenger list - instead in the column that says "coming from" it says Leicester, and in the column that states "destination" it also says Leicester.   :-\  I would be interested if anyone who is more familiar with these lists could explain them!

His mother was German, so he may have been going to see family.

I suppose this suggests I might not find him in Germany permanently.

Info about the ship he was on http://www.harwichanddovercourt.co.uk/harwich-ships/london-north-eastern-railway/ so yes - perhaps he was visiting relatives in Germany.

At 15 he was a little too young to be a Policeman... I think you will find that applies to the person next to him on the list.  Easily done.

According to the passenger list, his DOB is 21 June 1910.  I'm now using that to search and will see what comes up.
