@T.E.D. Young people tend to congregate in larger groups, schools, soldiers sports events etc. I thinks this is why its so prevelant.

comment 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic - Experience
@T.E.D. From what I have read the reason for the distruibution for in this particular pandemic was the mobilization of troops coming home from the Great War. I bet your right about other pandemics and I will keep a look out as its an interesting subject considering it killed more people than the war itself, yet you never hear about it until something like bird-flu surfaces.

comment The original Lord Haw Haw's life in exile (Ireland)
What do you mean by "legal documents of the period"? I ask because I am aware he was involved in many court cases here in Ireland between 1950 and 1966. Would legal documents not fall under the Freedom of Information Act? Maybe you are suggesting like wills and probate (that kind of thing?). Kudos to your mom :-)
