    Hi David,

    This site has some information.

    The GRO Regimental Births Indexes 1761 - 1924 record these:

    Hodges Robert J, Malta, 1900, Regt. R.A. Volume 1568 Page 62
    Hodges Robert J, Malta, 1900, Regt. R.A. Volume 1549 Page 48

    Hodges Violet H.M, Malta, 1901, Regt. R.A. Volume 1568 Page 62
    Hodges Violet H.M, Malta, 1901, Regt. R.A. Volume 1549 Page 48

    The birth certificates can be ordered from the GRO (go to "Order Overseas Certificates" on the right of the home page).

    I have no idea why each birth registration is duplicated. It may be worthwhile asking the GRO.

    It's because the system was ramshackle. The information was picked up from various forms and if the marriage data appeared on more than one form, it got recorded twice.

    I would advise Raa to get hold of his army records - there may be a transfer recorded which explains the duplication.
