  • Notes 
    • After Horace was posted missing in France on 18th November 1916, his brother Hubert helped Daisy to get a pension for herself and their four children.

      Letter written by Hubert Cath from Lanmore, Lennard Road, Beckenham on 20th February 1917, Ref: 11317/17164/GSEK
      Dear Sir,
      I am in receipt of Army Form B 104-106 sent on behalf of my sister in law and would be much obliged if you would let me know at your convenience whether I may delay the completion of the same for a few weeks as Mrs D E Cath is about to be confined.
      Would you also please state for how long the separation allowance is paid - I was under the impression that it was 33 weeks but it would appear that this cannot be so.
      With apologies for troubling you
      I am Dear Sir
      Yours faithfully
      [signed] H G Cath
      To: The Officer Inf. Records, Hounslow

      Infantry Record Office, 45 Grosvenor Rd., S W, 7th March 1917 - internal memo states: Re attached letter, Army Form B 104-106 need not be completed until Mrs Cath is in a position to do so.
      Separation Allowance is issuable for a period of 30 weeks from the date of notification that a soldier is reported missing.

      Daisy received 1/4/6 separation allowance plus 3/6 allotment of pay up to 29 7 1917. From 30 7 1917, she was paid a pension of 13/9 for herself and 15/0 for the children, a total of 1/8/9. The children's allowances were payable up to their 16th birthdays.

      Ella writes:
      We were living in Surbiton at the time of his death and Mother looked for somewhere larger so that she could let off part of it to pay the rent. I think it was a little time before pensions came into force and Uncle Hubert made it his job to see that she got one - and an officer's pension at that altho' he was only a private and, as I understand, had turned down any suggestion of training for an officer on account of his age - he was I believe 36, and trainee officers were mostly young lads.
      Anyway she found the house in Thornton Heath. Grandfather Cath's sisters Susan and Edith were our first boarders and, looking back, they were always very good to us - altho' I'm sure we didn't appreciate it at the time.
