Guy Fife Earle in 1939 Register
« on: Sunday 30 August 20 10:08 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I am trying to pin down Guy Fife Earle in the 1939 Register. I am beginning to think that perhaps he was not recorded... it is possible he was away, particularly as I believe he was in the RAF. His date of birth is 24 August 1891.

I have him in a 1936 electoral register at 52 Abbey Lodge, Regent's Park; with Bridget Joan Earle, who is his wife.

In 1945 Guy is at 49 Loughborough Park SW9, seemingly with a Surridge couple.

As to his whereabouts in 1939, I am none the wiser! If anyone could offer some advice or suggestions, that would be much appreciated  :)

Thank you,
Lissy

Thank you, that is indeed his marriage and wife (his third)

I feel like a bit of a fool for not trying to find Bridget, so thank you, and at least Guy was not with her so I haven't completely lost the plot and missed him.

KGarrad, thank you for that information; I have certainly found plenty of relations who had similar career paths to Guy, but I suppose they may have been retired/inactive. Guy, I would presume, was very much active at this time. That would likely explain his absence.

He was a Captain in the Army (Rifle Brigade) when he married in 1918.  He is still  listed as Captain on 1936 electoral registers

In theory he would have been too old at 48 to sign up for the Second World War.  As he had previously fought in the first and was a Captain perhaps an exception was made.

"The National Service (Armed Forces) Act made all able men between the ages of 18 and 41 liable for conscription; as part of the legislation it was decided that single men would be called to war before married men."
