Office of Works', 'Frederick Valentine Russ was employed by the Office of Works, 
after his discharge from the Armed Forces in 1919-20, as a technical officer.  
His office/department  had responsibility  for the 'English Heritage' - 
including Wales & Scotland' 

ABR has on p5: 'Uncle Fred trained as an architect'.  This is incorrect. 23. 
(4) DK, 'Frederick, who was still living at home, volunteered for the army.  He 
would fight in the trenches in Belgium.  After his second bout of pneumonia, 
however, the army refused to send him back to the front, so he became a 
balloonist in the Royal Flying Corps', Dean King is wrong - Fred was married by 
the start of the War; he moved from Hemel Hempstead [poultry farming] to Ealing 
probably close to the outbreak of the War.
