James Brown’s army attestation papers give his date of birth as 27 August 1905 and his age as 20 years and 120 days when he joined the Royal Artillery on 29 December 1925. His place of birth is given as Willesden, London. His father was also James Brown, his mother Annie.
However, when he married Muriel Gladys Sophia Sanders on 10 June 1944, his age is given as 41. I can’t find a birth certificate anywhere. Can anyone help? Christine Brown, by email
