All down to computers - but it's always nice to find a Service Record given the amount lost forever in 1940.

I'll see what the 1901 Census has...

I just read this one & thought it worth posting now - Frank Oswald Brown, "Man in Australia". Looks like he's trying to sort out his pension, records having been lost / mislaid.

And a check of the 1891 Census shows the family living in the same area, at 61, Cressingham Rd, Blackheath, but without the unborn Frank & without his maternal grandmother living with the family yet.

Living with them is a Kate Daw, (reads like "Day" rather than "Daw" on the scan of the original document)14 years. Her relationship to the head of household, James T Brown, an iron plate worker, is given as "serv", her occupation as "general domestic servant".

GREAT BRITAIN - 1914 Star, named (block) Dvr J Niblock R G A

R Williams, 1986

A seperate thread on Niblick could be handy too - only found his MIC so far:

James Niblock, also served as number 308017, as Graham said.

Rose to Bombardier by the end of the war, awarded the Territorail Efficiency Medal as well as his 1914 Star trio.

No indication that he ever claimed his clasp & roses:
