I had a hint today for a person in my tree mentioned in a newspaper, looked at the article and it was a race horse.

I haven't been invited either, I did notice today that there is 25% off all pro subscriptions with the offer ending today. Perhaps it has been available for a while and I have not noticed.

The buttons on both the greatcoat (overcoat to a civilian) and what is know as the No.1 Home Dress, which is what he is attired in were brass and had to be polished using a product such as Brasso. A buttonstick was placed around them to keep it off the uniform. Nowadays the buttons are staybrite and do not need polishing.

Just a slight point, the tie should be black.

I received an email from them a few days ago saying from my next payment due 19th of this month my subscription was going up by 0.33 a month making a 3 month payment of 47.99.

The lady on the left looks determined not to enjoy herself, I think a lot of people have similar photos in their family albums. I have a photo of my maternal grandmother and her three sisters and all four look like right battleaxes as the late Les dawson would have described them.

That well known source of all knowledge (not necessarily accurate since anyone can edit it) Wikipedia has an article which you may find useful especially the section towards the end about it operated in the UK.

I writing down the left side does not really matter it just shows the offices that the document/s went through in the pension process.

I can't help with that but I can tell you that in 1942 he was fined 10 by Leicester magistrates for being a bookies runner.
