Well I finally got it to download and now it's working I thought I'd offer look ups.

Lots of interesting stuff in it, and just to prove that I'm not a bad sort, your look up request doesn't have to have anything to do with the War!

Anything on Brig-Gen Robert Montgomery Ovens or Brig-Gen Archibald Bentley Beauman (possibly spelled Baumann) would be great.

It's a pleasure Annie.

It makes a change for me to able to help out rather than be helped. It's nice to be able to give something back.

Is there a rough criteria for inclusion in the list ?

Cheers

Hello Ian,

This is from the Who's Who website and I suppose the qualification for inclusion now is the same as in 1926 so here's the explanation.

Who’s Who, published annually since 1849 and the first biographical book of its kind, is among the world’s most recognised and respected works of reference. It contains over 32,000 short biographies, continually updated, of living noteworthy and influential individuals, from all walks of life, worldwide. Approximately one thousand new entries are added every year.

Each biographee supplies the original information for their entry and is then sent an annual proof for updating. Our editors also monitor the press and other sources of reference for day-to-day changes and additions. The information contained in a Who’s Who entry is essentially autobiographical, its integrity and accuracy ensured by constant independent research.

Who’s Who is a standard reference book in libraries around the world, relied upon by academics, researchers, business people, government officials and charities, as well as the casual browser.

Still confused?

I wish I could answer with a definitive but alas I can't

All the best,

Nigel

Thanks - thats a pretty good sum up

Can you look up Colin Goldsworthy Heywood and Geoffrey Moore Paget - both coldstream offiers ? He former was very wealthy and gave generously to his old school - the latter was related to a Baronet (or similar)

Ian,

Sorry, but I've drawn a blank on both your men. I have to admit I'm surprised too because the Guards are well known for having all the right connections. There is two and a half pages of Pagets including many deecorated officers of line regiments. If you know any further family members, they might be included and I'd be happy to look for them for you.

Colonel Campbell VC is listed, would you like his?

Better luck next time.

Nigel
