Hi Mirl,
Wonderful That's the gentleman .
My grandfather lived at 5, Montague road, he purchased a rare bass mandolin from this tenant. Latter in the 1930's he gave this mamadlin to my father, who had just joined Trois and his mandoliers. I can provide a photo if you want.
 I thank you for your prompt reply.
Reg.

That's OK Reg, I was just narrowing the time frame in case you were trying to construct a full history for Mr Essex :)

By the way Reg, would you like to combine your old and new identities on RootsChat so that all your posts are in one place?  I believe Sarah can do that for you if you PM her.
