I meant the first name John of course, what did you think I meant? Wink

Mind you, I did find a John Smith once, just to prove I could.

Oh well, that's OK then!

I wonder who'll find the military stuff . . . . . . . ?

I don't think that David or that Adam read their messages these days let alone queries so we'll just have to guddle on ourselves. Wink

You won't find James on CWGC or SNWM because he survived the war but I could try and find the MICs on Ancestry if you are interested?

I'm just winding you two up! (and it worked Laughing )

What's happened to the 'Society' thread - has it been deleted?

Now you see it, now you don't - or is it just me who's looking in the wrong place?
