Hi Sandblown

Thank you

Thomas's occupation was given as Labourer, he states he is 45 years old when he really is 49, he didn't last long, he joins in August 1915 and is discharged in March 1916 under para 392, not likely to become an efficient soldier.

Kind regards

Simon

Thanks Sandblown for this information

A few posts on the Great War Forum suggest that the 3rd Provisional Company R.E. remained in Britain, but my Thomas Hobson according to his record, goes to France immediately after joining up.

Once again, thanks for the info

Kind regards

World War One / 3rd ? Coy, Royal Engineers
« on: Sunday 07 March 21 21:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

Please can someone tell me what 3rd ? Coy means, and does anyone know where these Royal Engineers were between August 1915 and March 1916

My next question, My Thomas Hobson joins up on 18th August 1915 and is in France 7 days later, is this unusual?

Thank you

Simon

Hi

Does anyone have access to Grafton Flyford or Flyford Flavel parish records, I really would appreciate a lookup.  According to the censuses, my 3 x gt grandfather John Nash was born 1812-1814 in one of those parishes

Thank you

Derbyshire / Re: Oswald Stephen Dippnall died Belper 1961
« on: Sunday 10 May 20 21:30 BST (UK)  »

This is a connection to children’s homes in Derbyshire, which may assist

I was thinking more of an institution than a home, the family were in Manchester, which makes me think it was somewhere that offered a more specialist environment, otherwise I'm sure he would of been closer to home.  I've now no family to ask, I'm probably the only person alive that knows this poor boy existed

Thank you for your help, it is most appreciated

Kind regards

Simon
