Charles Edward Armstrong was born in 1897, the son of Joseph H. and Phoebe E. Armstrong (nee Davies). On the 1901 census, Armstrong is living with his parents and sister Edith M. at Neal Place, 20a Chapel Street. His father is an Insurance Agent. BY 1911, they have moved to 24 Hordern Road. Charles’s father and sister are now listed as Harry and Marjorie respectively, presumably their middle names as that would fit with the initials on the 1901 census. His father is now a School Attendance Officer, and Charles has become an Engineer’s Office Boy at a motor cycle company.

Charles’s military records have not survived, apart from his medal card which states that he was in the R. A. M.C., number 2478. Charles married Ellen Meacham after the war in 1927, but they do not appear to have had any children.
