Thank you all for your responses.

The reason I know it's Hubert John Hawkins is because of the newspaper clip of his wedding to our ancestor Phyllis Mary Crawford (attached). I know she remarried another soldier (William Van Horne) but did not know why and - this second marriage happened in 1956. The military pension card in my OP came from an Ancestry hint. That's the only information i have and am searching for more, including birth records, marriage records, etc...

So am I to understand there are two individuals with the same service member?

Good day all,

I'm searching for information on a soldier for whom I have the following information:

Name: Hubert John Hawkins
Service Number: 31194
Regiment: King's Regiment (Liverpool)

I'm not sure where to begin looking for further information. I found a UK, WWI Pension Ledgers and Index Card card (attached) on Fold3 via Ancestry. However, I'm not having luck finding more info there - likely 'cause I don't know what to search for.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / No Idea what two words are?

Here's the transcription - but I can't for the life of me figure out the two words in underline:

John Graham, Weaver in the Parish of Dunning and Agnes Hepburn youngest daughter of Robert Hepburn Weaver, _____ ____, in this Parish Gave in their names for Proclamation in order to Marriage. They were proclaimed before the congregation the two following Sabbaths and Married on the 20th day of January at Perth by the Rev. Mr. Finlay

My thanks to you both!.

Good evening,

Please and thanks :)

The Common Room / Baptism vs Christening
« on: Friday 07 August 20 22:43 BST (UK)  »
Good day all,

Please excuse my ignorance but I'd like some help on Christening vs Baptisms. Depending upon which website I choose to use, events are labeled as one or the other. For example:

Ancestry/Find My Past: Robert Meiklejohn was baptized on 29 May 1825
Family Search: Robert Meiklejohn was Christened on 29 May 1825

I've googled and relive i understand the difference but it seems that sites / others use the terms interchangeably?

I use the following naming convention from my media files

Surname_Forename_Middle Initials-event year-event type

and now have files that are identical but one is a baptism (BAP) and the other a christening (CHR)?
