Pte. J T Hoggarth - India 1924.

This is the Army Education Certificate presented to John Thomas Hoggarth in March 1924.  John, then a private in the 2nd Battalion of the Lincolnshire Regiment was posted to Lucknow in India, where, in 1925, he was awarded a further certificate after qualifying as a Trained Regimental Nursing Orderly.

John was born 2 Sep 1902 to Isaac Hogarth and Jane (née Smith), of Horsemire's farm, Egton. He had left the Army by 1929, since a certificate dated 25th of May that year, gives his profession as 'Ironstone Miner' when marrying Esther Jane Barker, the daughter of a quarryman.  John died in Middlesbrough, Cleveland, on the 16th of July 1980.  Note that his name was recorded with a single 'g' on both Birth and Death certificates, but with two on his Marriage certificate and the one shown above.
