Frank Crosskey 1902

This photo belonged to Tom's grandfather George Ambrose Miller. It was sent to him by Frank Crosskey who was a close friend and I believe went to school with him at Ringmer in Sussex England.

Taken in September 1902, Frank appears to have served in the South African War 1901-1903 - Sergt 21 Battn.

Charles James Harman

Looking for information about Lavinia Raven Fisher, I found Merron Rddiford's post in her blog My Western District Families about her husband Charles James Harman's (#251051) London experience!

"On this day in 1929, The Argus reported that my gg uncle Charles James Harman, then a Flight Lieutenant with the R.A.A.F., working as a Liaison Officer in London, had the once in a lifetime opportunity to ride in an airship, the R101."
