Curiouser & Curiouser!! He obviously didn't want to be found as there is no 64 Steyne Rd. The road is numbered now and there is nothing in the 60s until 67a. The 1915 street directory confirms only house names . It would seem to be at the Crouch La junction. as 67a is first then 67, 68, 69 . The directory shows a couple of houses and a hospital. Now there is a bungalow (1920s?) with the entrance in Crouch La and a gap then 67a which are probably 1930s

Only thing you could try is Seaford Museum, they have a record of addresses and occupiers for the town to see if they have any reference to street numbers. Pete

Hi Pete,

Thanks so much!

I wonder if he was headed to the hospital?  According to his neices & nephews "he took off with a nurse".  They never had contact again from him either. 

I'll have to get his military file out and see what his last "post" was in England.

Sounds possible, but strange about the numbering. Seaford Museum might be able to  tell you if it was used as a military hospital. I'll get the name of it tomorrow from the street directory. P

Just going over his file, he is listed at Seaford, Sussex from 1917 to 1919.  In a letter dated March, 1918 he gives his address as No. 8 Canadian Sanitary Section, Seaford Sussex.

Maybe I will post a request on the WW1 board as to where that was.

That would have been at North or South camp on the Eastbourne side of Seaford. We have a few photos but nothing remains now. I think there is a clip on the Pathe News site of it. I'll have a look. A friend of mine is working on a project about the camps so I'll try him too. Pete .

Petmas,

You know RootsChat provides a link shrinker, don't you?  You'll find it at the bottom of the "home" and "profile" pages, maybe elsewhere too.   :)
