Finding new information

It's really encouraging that after years of researching online, new documents still appear - today, I found an additional pension record for my Grandfather that wasn't there a year ago (Fold 3). 

Thank you to all the people making this possible.

What have you found lately?

Was it a pension card(s)?  If you need any help interpreting a pension card(s) then please don't hesitate to ask - and put his name here = Happy to help.

The 1921 Census - A fit country for heroes.

Lloyd George Wolverhampton  24 November 1918

“What is our task? To make Britain a fit country for heroes to live in. I am not using the word ‘heroes’ in any spirit of boastfulness, but in the spirit of humble recognition of fact. I cannot think what these men have gone through. I have been there at the door of the furnace and witnessed it, but that is not being in it, and I saw them march into the furnace. There are millions of men who will come back. Let us make this a land fit for such men to live in. There is no time to lose. I want us to take advantage of this new spirit. Don’t let us waste this victory merely in ringing joybells.”

7th August 1914 South Wales Borderers served with the 2nd Bn Dardamelles

Discharged from Northumberland Fusiliers 20 June 1919

William John Farmilo probably did not serve in a theatre of war in the Great War

All dependant on the Bedwas Navigation Colliery which kept the Royal Navy supplied with coal throughout the war

All out of work, the reality of the Lloyd George's vision.
