Hi all,

I've trying to do my old school mates tree for him for a birthday prezzie, but a few certs got delayed, so now it'll have to be a christmas perezzie.

On his grandfathers marriage cert, in July 1918, it gives his Rank/Profession as 1st Lincs Yeomanry. Married Lily Pinkett.

He also was known by the name of Arthur(William) Norton (b.1893. Woodborough, Notts), and he lived in Lincolnshire all his life.

Fathers name is John Henry Norton (Farmer).

Got all the census details etc. Just wondered if anyone could see if there are any military records for him.

I'm sure it will be BH.

I'll recheck where he lived, and should at least show which squadron he may have been in.

EDIT. Just checked, it would have been 'B' Squadron. Louth. (hopefully).

Cheers mate.:)
