    Don't believe the 1921 Census transcriptions

    As I had an uncle that stripped my grandparents house before any other member could see what was there, at long last my cousin has found that my maternal grandfather, Frank Roland Locke was born in Weymouth in Dorset. Despite extensive search, including all you very nice people a few years ago...

    Wierd.

    In banter with some of my friends, I've said that the only reason I don't play rugby anymore is that the legs are not talking to the brain, to which the phrase "It's called old age!" gets mentioned?

    Wally moments.

    As it seems that organisations now expect everyone to be in possession of the latest products, I went to my bank to ensure they had my mobile phone number. When the lady checked the details on her machine and asked me to tell her, I got it wrong. I hardly use a mobile, I'm told I'm not SMART...

    1939 Register

    In discussion with a cousin of mine who has done more on our mutual tree, she has come across something which is baffling. On the 1939 Register there is the following:- Frank Roland Locke (grandfather), Emma Maria Stafford then Locke (grandmother) and Evelyn Mavis Locke BUT there are three names...

    Wally moments.

    I have to be a real wally. It has been said, mainly because most of modern technology passed me by during my years as a carer, I AM NOT SMART ENOUGH FOR A SMART PHONE, and these are my friends? I hardly use the cheap 'non-smart' mobile and £20 can last me about a year. Strangely though, I don't...

    Strange happenings

    Re-incarnation? I like many others would not think it could possibly happen, but the speculation is always there. During WWII my father's younger brother lost his life on 17 June 1940 when HMT Lancastria sank. He was initially buried on 13 July 1940 - and I was born on that day but 5 years...

    Wally moments.

    About two weeks ago, I realised, when making a Baked Spanish Omelette I didn't have a pepper. Jacket on, face mask on got to the shop and realised I didn't have my wallet. To sooth my frustration, I had a drop of Penderyn Whisky (It's made in Wales) and made the trip again. Is this old age?

    Prisoners of War?

    Many thanks Gibbo. Like many people, I think the family concerned are totally unaware of how to track down military history. As it happens I applied for my uncle's service records at least a year ago, and the lockdowns have caused this massive delay.

    Prisoners of War?

    Thanks Steve, it's the guy from Blackburn. He joined in 1939 and it seems this is yet another family that never talked about WWII - just like mine. There's also a question mark about this guy having a court martial - the mind boggles. Any information would be helpful. Trust you are hale and...
