I still think the best theory about the 1 yr 5 mths, is that the photo is  1yr 5mts old.

So, it was taken on baby's birthday, and is 1 yr 5 mths old.

The pads on the bear's feet have been replaced at one time (I don't think that helps us though!)

Bristol Airport Lost Teddy Bear 'Seeks' Owner

"Bristol Airport is trying to find the owner of an antique teddy bear left in a carrier bag in the departure lounge more than a year ago.

Staff said the bear, who they believe is called Glyn, was found with an old photograph dated 1918, and other items.

I would be interested in knowing what the other items in the bag might be?maybe they would hold a clue or two in this mystery,
Adams,McKittrick. Co Down. N Ireland.

I love this challenge!

What adorable little children.

I also think the bear's pads on it's 'arms' are different from in the photo - longer, maybe mended, and extended to cover damage?

As I am coming to this late in the piece, I think the older child is Dora, and the younger child is Glyn, and Glyn is 1 year and 5 months old. Phrasing is a bit odd on the back of the postcard but that is my understanding of the wording. Might the tankard be a first birthday present for Glyn, though it could be a christening present I suppose?

There appears to be a picture in the locket around Dora's neck. I thought it may be a picture of Glyn - but am likely to be mistaken.

Lovely image.

Would a little (engraved?) silver(?) tankard be given as a present to a boy on his first birthday perhaps too?

I'm wondering whether the photo was taken on Glyn's  first birthday ......and he is now 1 year and 5 months old......Could the Daddy have written that little bit on the post card about him being 1 year and 5 months old?
