Hello Chrissy  and welcome to Rootschat.
Yes, I am still working on the tree and I would be interested to know where your husband fits in.
I'll send you a personal message.

Hi Ken
That was quick!   Thank you for that info and I will follow up as you have suggested.
(I am an Ancestry member and have had no luck finding his record so guess it was destroyed)
Cheers,   Bill.

World War One / Re: WW1 - George Brown (1898-1962) - KOSB
« on: Thursday 11 December 14 08:25 GMT (UK)  »
I recently obtained a copy of 'Roll of individuals entitled to the decoration' as applicable to my grandfather's service with Kings Own Scottish Borderers during WW1.
Particulars as listed do not appear to match column headings and I am wondering if someone could help me understand some of the information.
The records is as follows:

KOSB                                                              LABOUR CORPS
1st  20582   Pte BROWN George    3.10.15 (2b)  408963  Pte   C1.Z 8.5.19

It's the "C1.Z 8.5.19" that I don't understand.  (The rest I believe means that he was originally with 1st Btln KOSB , Reg No 20582, and was deployed to the Dardanelles 3/10/15. Finished up, probably due to injury as previously suggested, with the Labour Corps Reg No. 408963). I have been unable to locate his Service Record and therefore want to understand any bit of info that comes along.  Any assistance will be appreciated.
Bill.

Hello Iain, it's nice to hear from someone (especially a 'real live cousin' ) after all these years since I originally posted on this site.  Over the years I have found out quite a bit about this branch of the family and I have been in contact with the cousins in South Africa. I would be keen to swap notes if you are interested but ask that you give me a week or so.  At the moment I am laid up flat on my back in bed with a lower spine problem but should be up and running shortly.
Regards,   Bill Brown, Adelaide, South Australia.

Essie, that is a very interesting site; only wish I could get it to print the part I want! It will be a great help when I go to find the property.  Never-the-less a trip to the SGO, as you suggest Stuart, will be necessary to get section numbers to nail down which property known as Bleak House borders Rocky Glen. Thank you both for your help.   Regards, Bill.

It's quite amazing the information out there on tap only for the asking!
These two Gregorys are Father and Son and are the Great Grandfather and Grandfather of my wife's relative.  I know where the Hd of Pinda is so it should be easy to locate the old farm by the section numbers now provided.  Looks like a trip to the country coming up.
Thank you both for your quick and informative replies.
Bill.

Australia / Bleak House, District of Pinda, South Australia

Relatives of my wife (Gregory Family) were born/lived/died in and around the once town of Amyton in the Hundred of Pinda, mid north South Australia (between Wilmington and Orroroo).  BMD records make reference to an address of Bleak House, Pinda but I have been unable to establish the location/existence of the house. I have found two relatives buried in the Amyton Cemetery, which I guess confirms that they lived in reasonable proximity. Would anyone happen to have any knowledge of, and whereabouts of, the 'house'. Thank you,  Bill.

Whoops!!! My wife reckons I'm loosing the plot - by the look of it, every chance that she's right. I recall having a look for the McConvilles a while back but forgot that I had posted on this site previously. Thanks for replying and I will follow up the links provided. Linda, I will be in touch shortly. Cheers, Bill.
