Oh brilliant jim1 thanks for that information.
Strange how she listed a B (Betty perhaps?) Reid and not Elizabeth Berry as she was then. First time i have see her listed as ‘B’

Thanks again

It's on the back of his MIC.
It's quite rare to get this information regards Other Ranks.

Hi jim1 if I could return to this. You mention about his widow living at 116 Wellington Road. Could you just run by me where her address is shown please?

Nothing to indicate he died during WW1. On saying that his widow is applying for his medals in 1924. She refers to him as her late husband. This is after they had been returned for correction in 1923. It's possible he returned them but died before getting them back.
Her address at the time was 116 Wellington Rd. Park Rd. Dingle L'pool.
His Regts. were 1st. Garrison Battalion R.I.R. with whom he served in Gallipoli hence his 15 Star.
Then Lab. Corps, R.E. & finally Inland Waterways & Docks (R.E.).

I have Mary Whelen to Patrick Reed in 1850 in Wexford. No other details on Mary, than probably died in Liverpool possibly 1911

There is a Harriet Joan Picken born in 1917 Atcham district September Q. Which may fit the bill Vol 06A 818

Atcham district in Shropshire.

Yes that’s him J thanks. I wonder if he died after a later sailing. Presume that he wouldn’t be in port for that long. Unless he signed up for another ship and the went back to the Vestris. Interesting accounts of the Vestris sinking in 1928 with great Loss of life. Posted a message on a NJ forum to see if there is a burial for him
