Might be his birth as no middle name looking at marriage:

Births Mar 1927 (>99%)
Bott James Foggon Lanchester 10a 617


brummiejan Report 12 Mar 2013 14:05

This is marriage for parents of above, but ideally you need his marriage cert to check father's name.

Marriages Dec 1924 (>99%)
Bott George Foggon Lanchester 10a 601
Foggon Maggie Bott Lanchester 10a 601
