  1. Severe technical hitch

    Help needed please! Percival George Hobbs https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/6641960
    When adding his final Unit & Rank RFC/RAF, Private 1st Class from 1st April 1918 to 7th January 1920 system froze, suffered 'long running script' issue... then added the entry about 15 times of its own accord... I've removed as much as I can but cannot remove the Unit: Air Force RAF/RFC lines. I can't even do it the drastic way by removing the evidence, because it is from the seed record. The headings and timeline are now showing correctly but please could all the spare 'Unit: Air Force RAF/RFC lines' be removed?…

    • Merging life stories - Archibald Douglas

      I think that these two profiles are most likely the same person:

      https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1679310
      and
      https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1679309

      but I can't see a service number for the second one.

      Is someone able to verify this by looking at other sources, please?

      • Adding a story etc

        I have just tried to simplify the way I add information by writing a story rather than adding a biography as a photo then highlighting the relevant facts. I produced a 1041 word story for my subject for today & attempted to add it to the box which said 'write as much as you like'. Unfortunately I had to remove it as the uploaded story was incomplete as I had run out of characters, so I resorted to my usual way of doing things. I am currently 'Remembering' 561 lives & I am sure there will be more. I have…

        • Service number unclear and mistranscribed from MIC

          Stanley Andrew Harvey https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1588453

          has been given the number #S4/122962 in seeding, but the number is much clearer in his Service Record, as S4/122565. I am as sure as I can be the Service Record is the same man - he made two entries in an autograph book which made clear he was in hospital, having been wounded at Gallipoli, and that he was with the ASC. This matches his Service Record.

          • Missing feedback posts

            I can't view recent feedback and discussions. The latest I can see is 27 November, and those I have read and contributed to since then have disappeared.

            Can anyone solve the mystery for me?

            Thanks,

            Andrew

            Thanks,

              • Is it possible to edit what I have just uploaded?

                I have uploaded some images and now notice a couple of small typos in my descriptions. Is it possible to correct these? (I can only see instructions on how to delete them and start again).
