Leonard Broadhurst is my Great Uncle, I have his birth certificate and to the best of my and other family members knowledge, he only had 1 christian name, Leonard. Birth Certificate shows only Leonard.   Uncle Len was born 2 Feb 1894.  The 3 brothers, all moved their birth dates by 1 yr so that the youngest (Bert) could enlist and the brothers would not attract undue attention due to age discrepancies.  I am also intrigued as to where the information about injury to the knee was sourced?  Uncle Len also had 2 (deceased) older sisters, Ada Louisa and Marion - both died in 1890 Ada @ 13 mths and Marion @13HRS!  Thank you for the detailed effort put into the research.
