In 1911, Fred was listed as being 22, a licensed victualler, born in Maidenhead, Berkshire. Alice was 7 years older, no occupation, born in Potters Bar. The couple had been married 2 years but at the time of the Census, did not have children. Ernest JOYCE was 35 and was listed simply as “Explorer” but there is a Wikipedia article about him which has him as a polar explorer. Hards fought in WW1 as a pilot in the RNAS/RAF, being Mentioned in Dispatches and awarded the DSC and the DFC. After the war, he remained in the RAF rising to become Air Vice-Marshal in 1940; and listed as such in 1955 in his mothers probate; and later Air Officer Commanding Aden. There is also a Wikipedia article about him. *

My interest in Hards is that I am gathering information about him for the Lives of the First World War website. *

In September 1909, Frederick George Hards, a clerk aged 21, son of George Henry Hards, a Licensed Victualler; marries Alice Frederick, aged 28, daughter of Edward Ernest Frederick, Tradesman, at Marylebone
