Transcriber's notes

Suspect the spelling of Mr Lisk in the Authorities should be Leask, as shown against the name "Mid Vord" on page 84.
From different ink used the version of the names "Niddi Geo" and "Navvi Geo" have been Re-submitted - this annotation being indicated in another name book.
Initials "W.F.", applied to the change of spelling for the name "Colvigirts" in the description of "Navvi Geo", refer to William Fraser c/a [civilian assistant]
