Re: 1911 Census Look-up Request

I have located one of the missing children. Elizabeth was 2 months old when she was recorded on the 1891 Census but absent from the 1901 Census. I located her Death Extract to confirm parentage and she passed 27th March 1896, age 5 years. Two remaining.

Re: World War I Gallery

Cannot, for the life of me, think from where I got the idea Carlo Cavani died during WW 2. Even the grainy photograph tells me it was WW 1 era.

Re: World War I Gallery

I did consider he joined the Italian Army considering where he died. That said, it was pleasing to see enmities were put aside for his funeral. My wife’s Italian father was interred but released following a positive statement made by his friend, the local Police Sergeant. Her maternal uncle and gran...

Re: World War I Gallery

Died of a fever during World War II in Albania of all places. In the Daily Record dated 29th November 2015, Stephen is recorded as stating Carlo arrived in Scotland with his (Stephen) grandfather. The article depicts a photo of grandfather and unknown son outside the West End in the 1910s. So, if St...

Re: The CHUSAN Disaster at Ardrossan

Not saying you’re incorrect meekan, but not necessarily. How were the authorities to determine the identities of the deceased if and when their remains were located which may not have occurred at the time of the article? If any remains were recovered, they were probably so battered as a result of th...

Re: Black Silk Squares for the Navy?

A matelot’s “silk” is part of his uniform, see 3rd last paragraph at link below where the image depicts a Boy sailor in perfect uniform - as it would have been at HMS GANGES. His silk is not readily recognisable but appears as “creases” on either side of the jumper (not “jacket”) front. https://nekt...
