Joe Pope / Arundel Castle


Hoping someone is researching a Joe Pope. I found this picture in my dads army photos it is marked on the back Joe Pope they were aboard the Arundel Castle which sailed to the Med in 1947/48.
My dad was in the REME and seems to have been friends with Joe, I have another 3 pictures of him would love to get them to a descendant.

Is this my grandmother?

My paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Chadwick, was born in July 1870 in Nottinghamshire. By 1901 she was living in London and in 1903 she gave birth to my father in St Marylebone workhouse. He was illegitimate and was brought up by a family in West Ham. My father never told anyone that he was illegitimate, probably because of the stigma attached. I only found this out when I ordered his birth certificate. When he passed away ...

Is this the same man?

Just wondered if anyone could lend me their expertise and insight into whether they also think the man in the works photo is the same (or at least similar) as the one in the second.

The image of the two men was taken at a steel works in my home town of Sheffield, UK. The man on the left is Arthur John Waddingham, and I reckon the one on the right could be my great-grandfather ...

Era of the clothing that this lady is wearing

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could please help me to please try and date this photograph? This photograph has been passed down in my family (it is a copy though and not the original) but nobody in the family knows who the photograph is of. I thought that if I could perhaps narrow down the era of her clothing that it might be a clue to her possible identity. Would I be correct in ...

Military Photograph

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could please help me to identify the uniform in this photograph? This photograph has been passed down in my family but we are uncertain of who the photograph is of. One side of my family has lived in Australia for several generations, but the other side came over to Australia in the 1920's from Wales. I know that one great-grandfather was in the military in Wales. I wonder if ...

World War I Photo - Suggestions Sought

While researching my wife's family, I have discovered this photograph of three World War I soldiers.

The identify of one of these is known, but not the other two.

Therefore, I'm hoping other genealogists may be willing to give me their responses to the following questions:

1. How many years difference in age is there likely to be between the three men (assuming they may be brothers)?

2. Can anyone identify the uniforms, regiments and ...

Type of Photo and Date


I inherited this recently from a family member.
I have no idea who they are, only an assumption as to which branch they came from. All I am hoping to establish is what type of photo this is and a rough age based on fashion/photo style.

Its printed on glass (which came as seen in photo, I do not have the missing piece). Could it be a couple on their wedding day?

Could the ...
