He was invalided back to England as he was no longer fit for duty. It would appear that he was returned to the army barracks in Woolwich which is where he deserted from. He may has been suffering from shell shock and it was not a cowardly action.

Hi again, I fully realise that as a possibily, but to prove "Shell Shock"?

Are you sure that Frances Revill was born Exeter or just a Domestic Servant there in 1911 born Sheffield?

PS Frances was a Widow in 1939 with the children already described in Cheshire, plus a possible male birth 1919 Marylebone shown as a Closed Record.

Yes you are correct. She was born in Sheffield as was her father. It was her mother who was born in Exeter.

OK you would have to bite the bullet, he from your findings alters his year of birth year on year, but the only one that gets close to a Widowed wife in 1939 is the one shown?

I think I will take a risk and apply to the GRO for a PDF of the original.

Thank you so much for your help and I will post the outcome.

Cheers,
