I just read this one Jayess I stood at the corner of Curzon Rd and watched the  soldiers  marching up from Charlestown, Quite a lot of French soldiers too. I got a few Cap Badges from them.
How are you doing I am now in my  nineties and apart from a bad knee I get around, Wife not in good shape though.  Wish I could meet you in the miner's for a beer.

Cheers Brian   N Vancouver BC

I've checked my copy of Winifred Bowman's book 'Five Thousand Acres of Old Ashton' thinking it might help but no luck. She does give lists of other obscure official posts going way back but unfortunately no mayoral information.
