About Arthur Alfred Reace

Born at 4 Star Street Paddington. Joined army, Royal Scots, 16th March 1910 aged 14.3/4 asa band boy. (i have photo of him but no scanner). He was discharged 1st Feb 1913, his services no longer required. In this time he achieved some education certificates. Hios discharge papers describe as fresh faced, grey eyes, brown hair, 5ft 1.1/2 inches (the half inch very important). He was discharged from Allahabad, India. He re-enlisted in May 1915 aged 20 to 2nd Battalion Dorset Regiment and was demobbed after the war in July 1919. By this time he was missing a middle finger of his right hand, the story is it was shot off!! I was told by Uncle Jim, his eldest son, that Arthur was very sports orientated, he played snooker and billiards, football, cricket and he was also a Sunday football referee. Maybe my son Simon inherited some of his genes.

He worked on Railways (and again story from uncle Jim) he was sacked for stealing chocolate! He unloaded carge and used to help himself to the odd perk. Jim When sacked he lost his pension and free rail travel. Nan was not best pleased!!. Jim also said they always had window boxes wherever they lived and the odd bottle of whiskey used to grow in them!
