3d postage .
What I am interested in is the CENSOR'S numbered seal on the front of each letter as they may be a clue to place and time.

Re: Scotland - Essential Worker/Unfit for Service WWII

Hello Janet,

I have been unsuccessful searching for records for this situation, but there must be some data as EVERYONE was registered in times of war !!

Re: Scotland - Essential Worker/Unfit for Service WWII

HI Paul,
It has been 5 years since Malki posted this here.

Very weird that the child has no name when baptized .

Oh well this is what genealogy does to you :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Cheers,
