Blackburn was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant in August 1914
This should surely read 1915? Rumiton (talk) 11:48, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
No comment received so I changed it. Rumiton (talk) 11:03, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, it should be 1915 for a number of reasons, and just to confirm our predjudices, ADB says:
" ... and was admitted as a legal practitioner in 1913. ... Blackburn enlisted as a private ... in October next year, [i.e. 1914], and landed at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. ... He was commissioned second lieutenant in August, and served throughout the Gallipoli campaign and in France in 1916."
after each line, but it makes no difference to the bottom line which continues to be one place to the right?!? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexmb (talk • contribs) 08:24, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
