Royal Flying Corp / Royal Air Force

Based on an old photograph, my great uncle Arthur Stump Lewis served in either the Royal Flying Corps or Royal Air Force during World War I (1914-1918). But despite paying a researcher to check various sources at National Archives, I am no closer finding out anything about his military service and the researcher has come back without any findings.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

John Lampard - Clock and Watchmaker

Does anyone know anything about John Lampard, who was a clock and watchmaker. He lived in Mere, Wiltshire in the 1830's but moved to Bruton, Somerset and then Raglan Place, Bristol to continue his work. He died in 1882. I think his son continued to be a clock and watchmaker. I would be grateful for any information, etc.

Missing Software

I have recently changed my computer and, while I was able to save my family tree data onto a flash drive, I appear to have mislaid the program disk. The program I used was Generations Starter Kit version 8, from Sierra. In the event that I am still unable to find the disk, does anyone know of a program that will be able to read the data.
