    Notes 
    • Perhaps Ernest was away or had left, but Dora registed her third and fourth children with no father named. An alternative explanation has arisen, in that the Norfolk County Council photograph archive has the following text:

      Corp. photographer Hyam's Studios

      Title Howes, Lance Corporal Ernest Walter, 6th Norfolk Cyclists attached to the Northamptonshire Regiment

      Date 191-]

      Physical Desc. 1 photograph, b&w
