County Kerry?
« on: Thursday 12 May 22 12:54 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Does this say ĎC. Kerry?í Itís from some Tank Corps records; the battalion this man came from was on the Curragh in Ireland at the end of WW1, and this record is from 1919.

Iíd appreciate any help!

Odd to have left the O out of Co..
Could it be a placename beginning with Castle? C. Kenny?
Any other counties on the page written in the same way?
Coffey, Cummins, Cummins [Skirke, Laois], Curran, Dillon [Clare], Fogarty [Garran, Laois/Tipp], Hughes, Keshan (Keeshan), Loughman [Killadooley, Laois], Mallon [Armagh], Malone, Markham [Caherkine, Clare], McKeon(e) [Sligo/Kilkenny/Waterford], McNamara, Meagher, Prescott [Kilkenny/Waterford/Wexford?], Rafferty, Ryan, Sullivan, Tobin

Or C for Camp perhaps? Thereís only three places on that page, all the same, written in two different hands.
Lipman family of Aldgate - ends with Lewis Lipman (d. 1871, Bethnal Green), son of John Lipman 'late of Glasgow' (1856)
McGregor family of Fodderty - ends with Alexander McGregor (b. 1765, Fodderty), son of Murdoch McGregor and Kate Stewart

Hereís the rest of the scan :) Iíve had to reduce the quality slightly, due to the maximum file limit.
Lipman family of Aldgate - ends with Lewis Lipman (d. 1871, Bethnal Green), son of John Lipman 'late of Glasgow' (1856)
McGregor family of Fodderty - ends with Alexander McGregor (b. 1765, Fodderty), son of Murdoch McGregor and Kate Stewart

Chester. Written with a bit of space after the initial C.

But the word in question (on the right-hand page) clearly ends with a 'y'  :-\
'Chester' is written on the l-h page and is quite different.

The column in which the mystery word occurs is 'Discharge or becoming non-effective: place'.

Looking back at previous pages the word in that column is always the same, until one comes to page 159 when the word Canterbury appears. On various pages before that you will find Canterbury and C'bury in various different hands. See example below

So I suggest your mystery word is also C[anter]bury. In fact looking back through the records I canít see anywhere else than Canterbury/C.bury ever being mentioned.
