    • He signed on with the Royal Rifle Reserve Regiment. We know that he was in the military in 1901 from the 1901 census. His address was given as St Pancras, and his occupation as Baker, consistent with what is known of him up to 1900, but his age was given as 40 years and 1 month, which is almost 10 years younger than he should have been. He may have lied about his age in order to qualify for service.

      He may have served in South Africa. There was an ET Mallett in the Royal Medical Corps who qualified for the South Africa Medal and Clasps, having served in the Cape Colony, Orange Free State, and Transvaal bewteen 1901 and 1903.

      He was listed in the Electoral Registers for London in 1900, and then again in 1903, and from then on more or less until his death. Perhaps that indicates that he was out of the country in 1901 and 1902.
    Alternate Name Edward Theodore  [11
    • In the marriage index, and in every census except 1861, his name is given as Edward; but in the birth index, death index, and Electoral Rolls from 1929 onward he was listed as Edwin.

    • This may not be the correct Edwin, but the "T" as middle initial could represent Theodore, and his age at death (86) is consistent with Edwin Theodore's birth date.

    • Edward signed his name as Edward Theodore, and added the initials M.V.O. after his name. This likely stands for "Member of the Victorian Order". It is not known how he came to be awarded this honour.

      Edward and Julia had been married for 26 years, had had 6 children, but only 4 living, and only 2 at home. Records of only 5 children have been found. The 6th probably died as an infant between census years. Of the 5 known children, Albert Edward was the one who died before 1911.
