Captain Alexander Frank Wallace of the Northern Rhodesia Medical Corps married in Aberdeen June 1918. Local papers gave good coverage.

48 minutes ago, Sinabhfuil said:

because he settled in Dublin after the war

Is there confusion Trinity College Dublin and Trinity College Glenalmond ?

 

Edit- Ah I see this at the foot of the NAM biagraphy:

After recovering, Wallace briefly studied medicine in Dublin before returning to Broken Hill with his wife

Hmmm. He doesn't seem like the man I'm after. I'm looking for the family of Alexander J Wallace, who lived in 40 Oakley Road in 1913; wanted to see if they were still there in May 1916, but this looks like a false lead - interesting, though. Darn. And thanks.

OK you have us confused now. That clip about service in Africa in your OP is clearly for Dr Alexander Frank Wallace (who as Charlie says, studied briefly in Dublin)

Are you saying now that you do not know anything about " Alexander J Wallace " other than that he  lived in 40 Oakley Road in 1913;

There is no Wallace in Oakley Rd, Dublin in 1911 census that I can find!

So where does the reference to Oakley Rd come from?

He was worth a bob or two when he died

and a number of unsubstantiated Ancestry trees give this as his birth in Monaghan

40 Oakley Rd was the registered office in 1933 of the newly formed company Merton Estate Trust Ltd. As well as Amy Harriett Wallace the other subscriber was Charles John Reid who looks similar to man noted as witness to death.
