World War One / Just the discharge details would be helpful..................
« on: Sunday 18 November 18 09:40 GMT (UK)  »
Wonder if anyone could find further information on this guy.............wife, confirmation of child/children, where he lived on discharge.........Would have been handy to have access to Fold 3 this weekend to solve this little brick wall.

I wonder if he was living in Kent after his 1915 marriage to Dorothy May Beale. Whether the discharge would mention a daughter Dorothy May Beale born 1916 Maidenhead  ???  Just looking for confirmation of those 3 little things. Have other information on him already.
