Thanks for your help.
Yes, I know the details but their son just needs their marriage certificate.

Thanks.
I thought that was the case but couldn't find him. That may just be my incompetence.
His name is Donal Ahern.

How would I obtain a marriage certificate for an army officer (RAMC) who married in Peshawar (now Pakistan) in 1940?

The Lighter Side / Re: Unidentified blazer badge

Thanks for the replies.
That suggestion looks good, although the flag is much more modern than the badge I think.
I may contact them.

The Lighter Side / Unidentified blazer badge
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 14:24 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone identify this please? It was found in a school archive so may well be associated with sport.

It appears to have the initials NCHA above a Tudor Rose, although the rose is unusual in that I have always seen the white rose offset from the red rose (ie rotated through 36 degrees).

There are groups with the initials NCHA (including some ending Hockey Association) but none that I have seen with this emblem.

It says that William Walter (sorry, typo) was the son of Otto and names one of their sons, William. It also names two woods they own next to their house in Winkfield.

Wales / Becoming a teacher in the early 20th century
« on: Friday 27 August 21 08:01 BST (UK)  »
In the 1911 census (Sy/idney Jenkins) is listed as a 17 year-old 'school teacher' in Aberdare (his father and eight brothers would all become miners). In 1939 he is still in Aberdare as an elementary school teacher and he would go on to become a headmaster (as listed on a list of famous former pupils at Park Schools. He may be the Sidney Jenkins on a list of pupils who obtained the Junior School certificate in 1910 and may be the Sidney Jenkins who became HM of St Pagan's School some time before 1952.

I have seen pupils become pupil teachers at that time but usually in private schools, but did this happen in state schools as well? Would he have had to gain some qualifications at some stage? His decision to become a teacher seems unusual from his background and I wonder how hard it would have been.
