Okay found it.  I see that he does have a name change and there is a date 16.1.56 which is probably when it was noted, in theory by the NHS as they had access to the 1939 from 1948 onwards.

Words at the end look like - retired 12 years (unreadable) then service?  ARP rescue ......

ARP would have been Air Raid Precautions.

The birth record that I gave you at Reply#12 could well be his birth. The only way you will know for sure is to obtain that certificate.  Cost 7 as a pdf.  If his father is Richard O(wen) then probably the right one and also if the birth date is the same as on 1939 that would be an added confirmation.

I never realised you could buy them as a PDF.
Going to order it and see what it says. The name John was used on 2 documents that I have. His marriage certificate with just John and on my dad's baptism as David John. Everywhere else he used David but apparently was know as Dai.
Thanks again you have been a great help.

Do let us know what it says on the birth cert.  It would be interesting to see if the speculation has been correct.

The pdf didn't match however a lovely dna match helped with the hunt and also ordered a pdf. We have his details as David Davies b 10 Sept 1890 Rhos.
Unmarried mum Elizabeth Ann Davies who a couple of years later married Richard Evans.
Can't believe I now have proof, been a long time coming.
Thanks again for all your help.
Also cant find him in any census as yet so off to have a nosey
