Thanks Mike - I think that is true, certainly for the Navy where ships were included, but
my great-grandfather was with the Army in Templemore, Ireland in 1871 and I don't
think that was covered. I have another relative (not in the Forces) who was in America in
1851 (and actually recorded in the US 1850 census), so it is these kind of cases that I
would like to remove from the missing census report.

I stand to be corrected, but I thought the England & Wales Censuses included
those serving overseas in the Armed Forces. I have certainly come across
relatives of mine in the Royal Navy based, for example, in Gibraltar. Perhaps
this was a Navy 'thing' and didn't apply so much to the Army.
