Source Notes

Birth registry entry in hand from Sy Scholfield, copy on file (Alpes-Maritimes archives, 1905, no. 929: dated 5 April, born 4 April at 9 AM).

Previously, AA database quoted 2 April from Gauquelin, Vol. 4, No. 1628, and CURA [1] which gives 08:50 GMT (and as Nice was on Paris LMT, so probably 09:00 Paris LMT), it's safer to give the time as GMT. Gauquelin gives 2 April, but all other sources (e.g. give 4 April.
