Nigel, can I ask about another one. Major (retired) John Charles Oddboy, RAOC. I'd like to know what he did after the war.

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!

Nigel

Nigel,

do you have anything on:

Edgar Percy Leheup

Edward William Wilson

Ruper Lyne Hancock Nunn

Charles Godden Copper

all ex-officers ww1.

Thanks

Josturm :D

Annie,

You may uncross your fingers now. It's a very basic entry and might not tell you anything fresh, but it was there.

Here goes.

Thanks Nigel

Hi again,

I'm thinking of downloading the 1914 Who's Who to offer look ups from.

Would many of you be interested?

I realise that many of the people we look into only "became someone" on the back of their wartime service but for some of the more senior ranking officers there should be entries with good descriptions of pre war service that might have been sidelined after the war.

Can we have a show of hands or a quick "Aye" from those who'd like me to do this please?

Cheers,

Nigel

Hi Nigel,

I wondered if you could see if there are any Stinton's listed.

Much appreciate you doing us this service.

Regards eskimo.

Hi,

Just this from the 1926 edition. A mention of a Stinton from the right area marrying the subject of an entry.

All the best,

Nigel

Curiosity got the better of me and I downloaded the 1914 edition regardless!

Look ups offered.

Get your orders in now, no need to specify which book you want checked, I'll do both for the same price, although if you know someone was dead by 1926 that would save a bit of time.

Could you look up J.C. Denison-Pender and H.D. Denison-Pender the former became an MP and both survived the war so the 1926 version should be the one if they're in there at all

Thanks John

You were warned

Do you have G. Windsor-Clive MP and anything on Lancelot S Fletcher who stood for the Liberals (unsuccessfully) in 1923

Thanks John

Does anyone know what the criteria is for appearing in Who's who? (not having made it in there my self!). I know DSO winners made it in to Debrett's Knightage, Baronetage and Companionage. Is WW more a case of whether you are/were famous?

I am not sure if a Captain is important enough, but could you please look up Captain George Hillis (Ellis) Nelson DSO, Cheshire Regiment, please?

Many thanks

Lynn
