World War One / Re: Silver badge medal card
« on: Thursday 13 January 22 14:10 GMT (UK)  »
His discharge was through sickness, so he may not have served abroad. There should be a medal card if he went to France.

There is a Medal Index card for an Albert E White; Labour Corps; Private 344036 -- awarded the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.

The Common Room / Re: Stump windmill

Looks like a 'stump windmill' refers to the remains of the actual stone work of the building. If you follow the link below to Historic England you will see an example of a Grade II listing of a 'stump windmill'

Death of Ernest Brooks:

WEST SUSSEX GAZETTE 10th JUNE 1915

'Ernest Brooks, poor fellow, who had been lying seriously ill for a long time, died on the 27th ult. A happy release for him, his friends say, as he suffered greatly. Brooks had a brilliant career in the Navy but was discharged mentally unfit for further service. Although he did not complete his full time, he was given a full pension and also a gratuity of £25. He was buried on the 31st and a large Union Jack was used as the pall

The following week, the same newspaper made a correction to the pension value and gratuity.

Always happy to assist as and when I can. Good luck in your further research.

It would appear that the premises at 40 Walkergate, Berwick upon Tweed is back to being the Rose and Thistle Hotel

OK, the 1921 Census has incorrectly transcribed her surname -- her surname is actually STANGROOM

The 1911 Census shows that she was the publican at 40 Walkergate, Berwick upon Tweed -- at that time the pub was called The Rose and Thistle

Bridget died on the 5th February 1927 and the National Probate Calendar shows that she was still at the Rose and Thistle.

Hope this helps you. :)
