Yes, I agree she is "alright"

She was the eldest of my Mum's twin Jack Cornwall. You may know my other cousins who also lived in Newark Street at one time before moving to Dill Hall Lane - Joan, Keith and Michael Boast. All three still live in Accy as does their Mum (my aunt) who turned 100 in February.
A Boast family lived at 26 Persia St in the 1940s and 1950s.

I got it off Ancestry.com.
I hope you haven't got it already.

If you want a better copy for your records then let me have an e-mail address where I can send it, but PM this to me rather than post it on here.
Thanks, Margaret. I already have his naval records from the Admiralty official records. That image there seems like only a partial record.
At one time I had the original written on a linen -type paper. I gave it to a relative in the States who framed it.
But thanks for your kind help in tying to get some information.

Thanks, Bob. That may have been my relatives before they moved to Newark Street.
