8th Mar. 1919
Bedford Modern School Forces Served lists:

Your help and consideration is much appreciated.

Please check - I think that these two are different people with the same name and are not duplicates.
Commandant Clara Deacon M.B.E. of the British Red Cross
Sister Clara Deacon of the Australian Army Nursing Service
They would seem to be in two separate places at the same time so they are not the same person. I would like to follow up on both.0 votes

Your help etc is appreciated.
He is listed on the Bedford Modern School Forces Served list 14 - 18 as Manchester Regt. B. 1892, Attended BMS 1899 - 1908.
The only evidence I have been able to locate to support this are the 2 Manchester Battalion Photos on the IWM site where he is listed as W.O. Osborn. Links as follows:
Your help, as ever is appreciated.

My grandfather, a farrier/blacksmith, aged 43 enlisted in December 1915 in the mistaken belief that only one member of a family would have to serve in the war. Fortunately both he and his son who subsequently served in the RFC survived. I have photographs to include in his Life Story1 vote

I wanted to add him in and did a search under Cracroft and there are at least 3 duplicate sets for the same person. I would have listed them but its easier to search for Cracroft and you will see what I mean.1 vote

Possible duplication - same service number and units0 votes
Two matching Life Stories.
This I think is first with service from 2nd April 1916.
This seems to come second with service from 1918
This is where I am getting my information from:

He appears on NZ WW1 Soldiers Transcription as the above, which seems slightly unusual to me.
He is also listed as Royal West Kent Regiment 2Lt on the Bedford Modern School Forces Served 124 - 18 List. He was at Bedford Modern School 1899 - 1902.
Your help is much appreciated.
