Karl Brayer, date unknown
Birth1895Zabieniec, Lodz, Piotrkow, POLAND; >
Known in Russian as Zhabanets, Lodz, Petrokovskaya.4 
(Witness) History1905Lodz, POLAND; >
     Poland was partitioned several times in the 18th Century between Russia, Prussia and Austria, and the country did not exist in its own right during the period 1772-1918. Lodz, in Piotrków Governorate (or Petrokovskaya Guberniya), was Prussian controlled until 1815 when it came under Russian control.
     There was major industrial development in Lodz through the 19th Century, particularly in the period 1870-1890 and it also became a major centre of the socialist movement. Poland was much involved in revolutionary fighting in 1905–07, and the Lodz insurrection, a spontaneous uprising by Polish workers in June 1905, was a key incident in the Russian Revolution of 1905.
     The insurgents were overwhelmed by the Tsarist military within a few days, but strikes in Lodz continued until mid-1906, when the large Russian military presence and mass layoffs of striking workers from the factories finally pacified the city. Even afterward, Lodz was not a peaceful city; in the years 1910–14 it was the site of a radical anarchist and socialist group Rewolucyjni Msciciele (Revolutionary Avengers) which has been labelled as "the most extreme terrorist group in the history of Poland".
     We can only speculate as to whether Gustav Brayer and his family were affected by or involved in these strikes and uprisings, and the extent to which the unrest contributed to Gustav's departure from Lodz and Poland.5 
Partnerc 1916Julia Orlova 
Birth of daughter9 Aug 1918Nona/Norma Brayer; Astrakhan, RUSSIA; >
In the families of Nona and her siblings, Nona's date of birth was always believed to be 8 Aug 1917. Perhaps she (or her husband LDEE) said that she was a year older to reduce the apparent disparity in ages when they were first living together.6,7 
Travelsay 1918 to say 1924Julia Orlova; IRAN/INDIA/IRAN; >
     Parents and daughter Nona travelled through the Middle East working in circuses (Karl on bottles, Julia on mandolin or zither) to India (where Daisy was born) and then back to the Middle East.
     They travelled through Iran (then Persia) to get from Astrakhan to India. It is possible that Julia had miscarriage(s) while in Persia.8,9

Notice
in the Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser, 10 Mar 1936, Page 6:
Cable news has been received from the U.S.A., announcing the tragic death following a motor accident of the Rev. and Mrs E. J. Emerson-Elliott, who were on a tour. The Rev. E. J. Emerson-Elliott was the brother of Mr. L. D. E. Elliott of Messrs. Guthrie & Co., Ltd, Kuala Lumpur.
Notice in the Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser, 16 Mar 1936, Page 7:
News has been received from Florida, U.S.A., announcing the death, following a motor accident, of the Rev. and Mrs E. J. Emerson-Elliott, the former being a brother of Mr. L. D. E. Elliott of Guthrie and Co., Ltd, Kuala Lumpur.
Comment: The information in these notices is consistent with information provided by LDEE in later years (eg, 1983 as per the Note at ID0016) but is clearly fictitious, as LDEE's brother EJ Emerson and his wife lived for many years after 1936. So, how and why did the notices appear? Given that there could not have been any cable news received from the USA by the newspaper, the information must have been provided by LDEE. Perhaps the word of a reputable Englishman was accepted by the newspaper without question. Perhaps the appearance of 2 notices within a week confirms a degree of sloppiness on the part of the paper. There were no reports of these deaths in the Straits Times -- perhaps that paper required a higher standard of proof.
Later in the month of Mar 1936, notices appeared in both local newspapers of the engagement of LDEE and Bunty Melville. In those notices, LDEE's parents were referred to as 'the late', although both were alive at that time. It seems likely that LDEE was making it appear that he had no living relatives who might be expected to attend his wedding in the Far East.32

Notice
in the Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser, 10 Mar 1936, Page 6:
Cable news has been received from the U.S.A., announcing the tragic death following a motor accident of the Rev. and Mrs E. J. Emerson-Elliott, who were on a tour. The Rev. E. J. Emerson-Elliott was the brother of Mr. L. D. E. Elliott of Messrs. Guthrie & Co., Ltd, Kuala Lumpur.
Notice in the Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser, 16 Mar 1936, Page 7:
News has been received from Florida, U.S.A., announcing the death, following a motor accident, of the Rev. and Mrs E. J. Emerson-Elliott, the former being a brother of Mr. L. D. E. Elliott of Guthrie and Co., Ltd, Kuala Lumpur.
Comment: The information in these notices is consistent with information provided by LDEE in later years (eg, 1983 as per the Note at ID0016) but is clearly fictitious, as LDEE's brother EJ Emerson and his wife lived for many years after 1936. So, how and why did the notices appear? Given that there could not have been any cable news received from the USA by the newspaper, the information must have been provided by LDEE. Perhaps the word of a reputable Englishman was accepted by the newspaper without question. Perhaps the appearance of 2 notices within a week confirms a degree of sloppiness on the part of the paper. There were no reports of these deaths in the Straits Times -- perhaps that paper required a higher standard of proof.
Later in the month of Mar 1936, notices appeared in both local newspapers of the engagement of LDEE and Bunty Melville. In those notices, LDEE's parents were referred to as 'the late', although both were alive at that time. It seems likely that LDEE was making it appear that he had no living relatives who might be expected to attend his wedding in the Far East.18

"If it is conceded that the manager [of a team of 4 Australian amateur golfers invited to tour England in 1938] should be a non-player, then there is one man who would give satisfaction. That man is Captain James Walker, Secretary of the Australian Golf Club. He is a personality whose popularity is universal, he has welcomed thousands of golfers, Australian and overseas, attended to their requirements, has conducted several National and State tournaments, is a great organiser, a good after-dinner speaker and undoubtedly capable in every duty which will fall to the manager of an Australian team abroad. He is a man with undoubted claims to the appointment, who would add lustre and dignity to the position, will enforce discipline, and no one will cavil at his selection, as it would be a sound and popular choice."46,47
