    Hi Paul,

    For entry #26 there was a bit of a spread of about 4 years

    Look at the deaths in the Old Haltonian RoH entry #26 and work backwards.

    http://www.oldhaltonians.co.uk/

    Daniells is a typo "21" for "25"

    Thanks All

    I have no doubt that John White who died 7th July 1936 in

    CAIRO NEW BRITISH PROTESTANT CEMETERY



    WHITE, Leading Aircraftman, John, Royal Air Force. 7th July 1936. Plot J Grave 107.

    Is 566029

    Based on the tip from Ross -
    #26 Entries were the following ages in 1940


    1940 -- 22
    1940 -- 23
    1940 -- 24
    1940 -- 25
    1940 -- 26

    So range 1914 to 1918 - So 1916 is fine for John White

    He is the only pre war J / John White that fits based on age and service number allocation

    Thanks all Again

    And as a post-script:-
    Christopher Day Beales.
    I tried a small experiment to see how much of a Halton Entry Nominal Roll I could reconstruct from various sources. Spent an interesting few hours!
    Flt Lt Christopher Day Beales (49973) b. Q1 1919 Reg Henley 3a 1237, d. 30 May 1944, caused me some problems.
    FWR has him as Christopher Day Beales 867010
    We have his OR number as 566010
    FREEBMD has him as Beales, Christopher D Jay b. Q1 1919 Henley 3a 1237 (I presume ‘Jay’ is MMS, it being after 1911?).
    The LG has him Commissioned as 567010 Sgt Christopher Day BEALES (49973) 1 Nov 42.

    I have come across the occasional typo in official docs over the years, but this one seems to take the lead!!!
