Seems the RA were well into that..(They are at everything.)Found this when researching an old friend (Not BW)

Quote :
Cradle snatching - or can anyone beat this
My paternal grandmother was the daughter of a Master Gunner in the Royal Artillery, who in the 1880s served in British India. I had a problem finding a marriage for him as I couldn't match an entry in the Army Chaplains' returns against with the name of my grandmother's mum. Then I located his army service record (WO97/4617), which records that he married:

"Sarah Jane HENRY (Henry is crossed through and TOWLER written afterwards) at St.Joseph's, Jullundur E.I on 24th April 1882."

I guessed that Sarah Jane HENRY/TOWLER must either have been widowed, or born illegitimate; but anyway it was enough to identify which marriage certificate to order. It duly arrived and showed:

24th April 1882 at St.Joseph's R.C Chapel, Jullunder
William J CROWE, aged 28, Sergt Major
Sarah TOWLER, aged 16, widow

A 16 year old widow?! - To add to the confusion, she is shown as the daughter of another soldier Michael KELLY, Gunner

Getting Sarah's birth certificate, I saw that she was the step daughter of Gunner Michael KELLY, Gunner 14389 and Mary HENRY and was born at Peshawar on 5th April 1867.

A quick bit of maths shows that when she actually married William CROWE, she was in fact only just turned 15.

There's a lot of work still to be done on this - Apart from just highlighting the family in case there is anyone out there researching the CROWE, TOWLER and HENRY in India; it struck me........can anyone beat a 15 year old widow?

The only 'entertainers' we saw was the live sex shows at the Teufel bar in Celle in the 70s.

My word !

Mike & Bernie Winters thankfully only visited the Officers when I was in Ulster in 1974.

Aye, but the Summer was alreet !

Except for pubs, whose cellars served warm beer.

Lots switched to lager that year, the only way to get a chilled drink.
