It certainly isn't minor with 7 companies photographed and around 9 reinforcement photographs... 

I'm nearing dismissal time at school, so I found time to find

Nurse Henrietta Eyre Maunsell Blake.. probably already on there. The barrel of luck is running dry ..

Frev,

Another strange one for you, that maybe not what your after?

McCULLOUGH    Alfred    3484    A/Cpl    01 LHR    30R to Reinf camp 12-17 revert to 1 LHTR 3-18 tos (RHQ?) 4-18 att Anzac MD HQ 5-18 to MT Dvr AASC MT rtn Anzac MD HQ 9-18 (17 IR CMF 3 years later WWII Sgt 15Bn VDC (N380173) AKA Alfred Alexander McCullough
 

His WWII enlistment forms show he married Ivy 15 Jun 1919

But his WWI forms show RTA 26 July 1919

So when did he marry and where?

I was thinking his WWII form is incorrect, as there appears no record he married in Egpyt, but records for this in Egypt are very bad?

For your special touch.

S.B

Hi Steve

Yep, his WW2 form is incorrect - seems he had a little trouble remembering the date of his marriage to Ivy!  They actually married in Manly, NSW on the 17/1/1920.

Sorry to hear that Tank - hope it hasn't hit you too hard - and that you're feeling better soon.  Seems we're both in the wars, as I've broken my wrist!

Thank you once again for spending time looking for married O/S soldiers.

From the list above: I have the 3 ADAMS boys, but the rest are new, ta.

Cheers, Frev
