    • This is the permanent UK address given by Arthur on 2 of his arrival declarations - returning from West Africa to England - between 1930 and 1932. (Although, it's not known how long he actually lived there for). However, on his remaining trips, Arthur gives his 'country of intended permanant residence' as The Gold Coast, Africa. Reviewing his travel from ships passenger lists, Arthur may have lived in Africa at least, between 1936 and 1938. He was certainly back in the UK by 1940, to marry Hilda.

    • Arthur was employed by the United Africa Company Ltd. He can regularly be found travelling between the UK and West Africa between 1930 and 1940 before marrying Hilda.

      In February of 1920, Lever Brothers purchased the Niger Company to further consolidate its position on the West African Coast. This Company not only traded in Nigeria, it apparently ran the country much along the same lines as the East India Company did in India. William Lever died in 1925 leaving the Company in an extremely vulnerable situation but within a few years the fortunes of the loss making Niger Company had reversed even after a protracted struggle with its rival the African and Eastern Trade Corporation. In 1929 the two Companies merged renaming itself the United African Company (Palm Line). A few months later Lever Brothers merged with the Dutch Margarine Union becoming the Unilever Group. United Africa Co. became a subsidiary of the Unilever Group.
