William George Elliott in Royal Marine Barracks, Plymouth - the 1920's
from An octogenarian's personal life story, pages 57-58:
[William George Elliott’s promotion to Sergeant Major in the late 1920s meant that he and his wide Ada and son George would be able to settle together at the Royal Marine Barracks, Plymouth]
My duties were various, always on call, not like now [1970s] with telephones everywhere, by a system of bugle calls, each Sergeant Major could be contacted to report to the Orderly Room for Orders.
