Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • Occupation: Charles was a mast and block maker in 1881 and a carpenter by 1901. When he signed up he stated his trade was a carpenter and joiner. On his son's christening in 1896 he was a publican of the Cobham Tavern and was also a victualler in 1904, so we had better check to make sure there was only the one Charles William BASE. He handed the licence over to his brother Walter George c 1900.

Census details

Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): We know we have the correct Charles William BASE as his father John was with him, a 'wife' named Annie who may or may not be Annie Glayfields, and many of their children.

In 1915 he stated his next of kin to be his wfie Annie Emma nee GLAYFIELD, and that he had a child Fred William born 30/12/1904 in Gorleston..

Military Career

Records show that Charles William Base served in the armed forces. He signed up in 1915, lying about his age. He claimed to be 40, when in fact he was 54. He was noted as fit for home service only, and by 1916 he was demobbed as unfit.

Military

  • 1915, Southtown, England, Lied about his age on the attestation form. He says he was 40 years and six months, but was actually 54 years old. He was appointed to the Norfolk Regiment, and was passed as fit for home service only. Certain this is the correct Charles William as he has the same address as the next of kin of his son when he joined up earlier in 1915.
  • 1916, as no longer fit for service. He did not serve overseas
