    Van boy 
    • Although first having a military meaning, the term 'van' was used for covered vehicles used to carry goods by 1829, so the term was clearly used for horse drawn as well as motorised vehicles. Motor vans were in use from the end of the C19th, so in 1911 Harry could have been working on either a horse drawn or a motor van.

      PR entry shows bach and sp, witnesses were Simeon White and Ethel Maria White (I didn't find Ethel's surname clear in the PR entry but it is on Harry's WW1 service records which were amongst those that survived WW2). Weirdly Harry appears to have signed his name Harold, corrected by the priest who conducted the wedding to Harry.
