I've been through the Birth index on FreeBMD and compared records for

Glyn/Glyndwr Q1 and Q2 1918 in Wales,
against the Doras from Q1 1913 to Q4 1918 in Wales,

and cannot find records that match all the surname, mothers name and district.

I think we need to look earlier than 1918 for Glyn. The photo was taken March 1918 and IF the younger child is Glyn in the picture, then he looks at least a year old.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Yes, I was wondering if the baby had died. I hadn't even thought that "1 year 5 months" was a strange birthday, but yes, it obviously is.

Now, I'm thinking that "Baby" is another pet name of one of these two children on their birthday.

I'm also now thinking that "1 year 5 months" is the time that they've not seen their Daddy, and in fact, that's why they've sent him the card because he's not at home.

1 yr and 5 months showing the age of two seperate children.  But No... thats wrong..... ::)

So Daddy has gone off to war maybe - and it is 1 yr 5 mnths since he went?

This pic was taken on the babys birthday to send to him.----

It says 1 year & 5 months old, so I think it must be referring to an age rather than a timespan since they last saw their Daddie.

Maybe we should ask the experts on the photograph board if there are any clues in the photograph i.e. the cup that was mentioned earlier, Glyn's dress?

The lady dealing with this at Bristol Airport is sending us a copy of the photograph itself, so I'll post that up once we receive it.

That should hopefully give us a few more clues. :)
