E is for Ern(est)

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. It’s my first attempt at the challenge, I hope that I have the stamina to complete it.

I will be going through the Curry forenames in my surname study database from A-Z and,  as per the event schedule, will share some of the articles I have found on Trove relating to Currys. For problem letters like X and Q I may  resort to Google.

Ern had more bad luck in 1942.

And who was Ern? I think Ern was the subject of the following obituary but I cannot be 100% sure.

    What interesting facts you have found on Ern. I blogged from A to Z about my family tree last year and found it much fun. I look forward to reading more.
