His number is definitely 2573903 - military medals roll sheet for E Poyser (served India - NW frontier). 1st battalion Royal Warwicks.
how amazing mike no wonder we could not find edward on the 39 register...he was in india by the looks of it..i am sure nick will be delighted with the newspaper articles you have found
Thank you and I never say or think information is of no use until I've seen it. Please could you send the image to my email or attach it to a reply or alternatively let me have the link? I've still yet to find Edward on the 39 although as you'll see above, we've found his father and also possibly in a blanked out (x7) 39 entry.
Reading the newspaper clippings Edward says theat he joined the army in 1937, so if that is correct then it is doubtful whether he would actually be one of those blanked out entries on the 1939 register.
Also he should be listed on the electoral rolls for 1945 and 1946, either with his wife or as an absent voter. Not available online I don't think but can be seen at the Library of Bham. Hopefully at a known address because if not then it's like searching for a needle in a haystack.
The 1945 rolls are online, and show Richard & Mary at 93 albert road in that year. A search showed no Edward Poyser in 1945. It has not been mentioned, and you may already be aware that the 1947 online rolls show an Edward Poyser with others at 9 Sandford Road in what is presumably a house converted into flats (see below

Are you sure that's correct? On the 1939 register her dob is 20 Aug 1917 and there's a death registered Jun 2002 Denbigh for a Dilys Mary Davies with that dob.
