Notes >> The Cox' and Friend's lived close to each other in Islington. Marianne Friend was born at the Cox's home Quelch House 13/9/1945. Looking at service record this was a lightning courtship as Bob did not return to UK until 7th July '43 and was stationed on Isle of Wight until Jan '44 when the 11 Bn RF moved to West Hartlepool. He most likely got 3 weeks plus leave for having served 2 years or more abroad. He was not posted to 11 Bn RF until 20/8/'43 so most likely that was his leave period.
