    I got one from new member called Braks. I reported it before I found this post. I rarely post. The good thing is that it's reminded me that Canal World exists. Every now and then I do a bit of family history research so visit then. Every cloud....
  2. Correction: After looking at Alice's registration papers, it probably wasn't Alice that Arthur worked on. Alice was registered 27th May 1926. I don't know which boat Grandad had before Alice.
  3. Arthur Brooks used to help my grandfather (William Preston) on board Alice (J&G Meakin). He signed his short service attestation papers at Middlewich on 11 December 1915 as service number 3/59037 in the Cheshire Regiment. In 1916 he was transferred to the Machine Gun Corps (service number 83149). He was killed on 16 August 1917 aged 22 and is remembered on the Tyne Cot memorial, near Ypres.
