Thread: 1939 register

    1939 register

    Hi,

    You've all been helpful so far this week so another one to look at if you would be so kind

    I'm after Clifford Garlick b.1921, Windsor, Berkshire. He joined the army in 1941 but can't see him on the 1939 register!

    Thanks

    Well maybe I guess but you found his attestation for 1941 so I guessed he wasn't then??

  5. #5
    yes but I did wonder about that, I always thought though ,that men would have been called up earlier than that?

    OH's father volunteered the day after war was declared ............. he was an optician with certain specific abilities and he wanted to be in the RN.

    He wasn't actually called up for service until 1941

    He became an Articifer, with the rank of CPO .......... and loved being able to ream out junior level officers when they'd done something stupid that led to him having to repair binoculars etc .... such as leaving them hanging in 100F heat . He apparently always ended his lecture/telling off with a loud "..... SIR!"

    Somewhere we have his record of service (not sure what the true name is) .......... the folder he had to carry with him when reporting to a new ship. No mentions of insubordination!

    BTW ......... this record really gives little information. It's really the date he was posted to a ship and the date when he left. Sometimes his conduct is stated.

    It does not give any information on where the ships were or where they went while he was on board ......... in other words, no help at all in finding out where he went or what he did.

    We do know some places and some of what he did, from tales he told and letters he sent to his young son with stamps of the various places.

    I have an ivory necklace composed of very complicated tiny balls that he bought around 1943/44 in Alexandria for his wife ............... of course, I can't wear it now! But it is evidence that he was in that area!

    If you mean Clifford M W Garlick you will remember from my post #5 on this thread - https://www.familytreeforum.com/show...33-War-records that he didn't die until 2000. So he wouldn't be showing yet.

    p.s. They had three children including Clifford between marriage and 1939, so the three redacted are likely to include him.
