  3. Charles John OFFEN or Arthur Henry CLARKE?

    An anomaly from the WW1 Service Records (WO 363): C J OFFEN deserted the RMLI in May 1894 and joined the Royal Artillery as Arthur Henry CLARKE. A confession to this effect was made, but unfortunately it is missing from the records. Is this man OFFEN (Charles John, b Q4 1874) or CLARKE, Arthur...

  5. Henry BURDEKIN Derbyshire c1878 - WW1

    This man RE-enlisted in 1911 under the name of Alfred CLARKE - so I assume his previous service was also under that name.

  14. Windeyer E G CLARK b1879 - WW1

    I'm not sure whether this man served as WILLIAM CLARK, or whether 2 mens papers are mixed in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363). Page 92017 suggests the former - the name (and, worryingly, the Regimental Number) are changed, but the signature is definitely W E G CLARK. For anyone seeking this...
