Staff Sgt. Major Frank Ethelbert Higgins


The ADRIC wanted his expertise, so one assumes he had a special skill. "Staff Sergeant Major" only appears to have been used in Army Service Corps at this time. No regiment is given. He was taken on to work in the Chief of Police's Office at the age of 55 . Accepted in Ireland

The fact that he a record for theft presumably meant he found it difficult to get a clerical job in England
