Hello Phil,

You have been hard at the books and thank you for the details of trawls through
NA and CWGC.  I have also been busy, you may find the following intriguing.

GRO Marriage??March quarter 1918 ?Kensington 1a 419?Harold A. C. PONSONBY = Edith F. DADSON??Marriage?September quarter 1941?Penzance 5c 667?Harold A.C. PONSONBY - Ruth Margaret MILLER
(from www.thePeerage.com)??Death?September quarter 1950 age 58 years?Lambeth 5c 936?Harold A.C. PONSONBY

From what I deduce this is life in the fast lane.  There is a new
photo I can forward.  I shall order the certificates which should
add to the picture.

Look forward to further discussion on the developments in the a.m.

good wishes
Jean

I know this thread is donkey's years old, but thought I would add an update:

It appears that in 1932 Harold Ponsonby filed to have the marriage to Edith nullified on the grounds that it was void due to her still being legally married to William Dadson. However, neither Ponsonby, nor his legal representative turned up to the hearing and the case was struck out.

Good Morning Phil,

Do trust you are well.  It is a while since you had kindly helped with the
research for  PONSONBY = BARR and the update is much appreciated.
Between us we had accumulated a huge file about this character.

With your permission I can forward the news to Christopher. I know he
will be very pleased.

Kind regards

Hello Jean,

I was hoping that you would pick up on my post. Do you realise that it is eight years since we last put our heads together on the subject of HAC Ponsonby?

If you have changed your email address since we last spoke, then please PM me with your current one, so that I can send you the paperwork. I would also like your opinion on my understanding of it, to confirm that I am correct. Certainly share it with Christopher.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Phil

Hello Phil

More than happy  to be engrossed in the WW1 records.
The email has not changed.
Recently I had attended a Family History conference  in NSW
Keen researchers there and s  more than worthwhile
add-on to a stunning and amazing country and kind folks too.

Jean   My great grandfather, John A Platt, served with Royal Field Artillery 212 Battery, his service record says that they arrived in France on December 20th 1914.  I found another online note saying that by december 25th they were at the front line and took part in the Christmas day truce.  My grandfather died when I was four, but I remember him well and had lots of photos with him as a very old fella.  I asked my mum a few times, what did granddad do in the war, always the same reply "Nothing, he never mention it"  Yet it was so ingrained in him that 50 years later he still slept as if on guard duty.   Im new here, so this is why Im just replying, years after your first post.
