Lanarkshire / Mclaren's and Nelsons of Kilncadzow, late victorian/early edwardian
« on: Sunday 04 November 18 13:02 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for any info be it photo or other (but mainly photos) on previous inhabitants of terra cotta
brick works cottages....

I've found the 1901 census for the mclaren's but not seen the 1911 one for the Nelsons.


World War One / finding my gt grandfathers dispatch rider service number/ records
« on: Friday 26 October 18 11:53 BST (UK)  »
how do,
   how would I go about locating (if they survived the NA bombing in ww2) his service records or even number so I can research him more?
  All I have to go on for sure is his name and address (prior to the war), he was with the 66th Div working with the anzacs, and he was gassed.  I've had no joy with absent voter registers. 
  Would attestation forms be about anywhere in either the NA or Royal engineers archives to help me positively ID/link him to a service number?



Armed Forces / Gnr JJ Roche RFA 1920-'32

How do all,

   I've got the service records (Both ww1 RAF, interwar RFA and ww2 Pioneer corps, in which he seems to have had 3 or 4 service numbers during his life) for my gt grandad but am trying to find out more about his time in India, he was there from June '20 -march '27 in 115 battery 25th bde.
   Any ideas of any links or books apart from going to PRO as I am up near glasgow ;-) ....The RA museum archives are u/s until July which is handy ;-).....



World War Two / RTR/RAC ?

How do all,

I've recently found out that my gt grandfather was either in one of the Royal tank regiments or the Royal armoured corps. All I have is a name, how likely is it that I would find some more gen on him?

Sarah Crabtree in 1942, they had a daughter *

Durham / McBay and Watson of middleton in teesdale
« on: Sunday 08 May 11 19:26 BST (UK)  »
   I've found out that some relatives of mine were born and lived in the Mill and Greatham House (?) of said village, one of them A C McBay (my gt uncle) was latter was KIA in the RAF, his home address was the Mill but his name is not on the local war memorial and was wondering if this could be rectified and who would I need to contact?   
   Also his Uncle J Watson (whose grave I can't find in the local cem, but found J watsons parents graves) had a daughter (I don't know her name or whether she lives locally or is still alive).
   Would anyone know the best place or person (any local historians in the town?) to try tracking her down if still alive?

World War Two / RAF Squiper (parachute packer) ww2
« on: Friday 17 September 10 13:50 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for any info regarding a man called Herbert Lupton who was a parachute packer in ww2, he lived in Hebden Bridge and had a daughter but apart from that I know nothing else, he was a great uncle of my grandfathers. 
   Would it be a case of writing to RAF Innsworths replacement or because he was a lowly erk am I going to have little chance of finding any info on him?



World War One / Northumberland hussars (yeomanry)
« on: Wednesday 16 June 10 23:34 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to get more gen on my great uncles father, all I know is that he was firstly in the above unit as a Sgt, having been a railway worker in Argentina, and was later wounded in 1917 when a 1st LT in the DLI(battalion unknown). 
   His name was William McBay.

anyhelp much appreciated as I'm not up to speed on WW1 researching....
