Thank you, Finbarr for the update. 
I'm not finding out anything on Google regarding Joseph Guillaume - if I'm spelling his name correctly. 

Anyway - he must be our man.

Hello Darren. 

Please get well soon!
We are all missing your reports. 
They're always great. 

I wonder if next Monday night will be clear (?)

There's an obit here Aubrey, although it's in French...

www.persee.fr/doc/geoca_1164-6268_1931_num_7_2_3871

He has observations in the monthly notes of the RAS going back to 1892.

I thank you yet again, Finbarr, for this further information. 

My wife Valerie speaks fluent French and she only had to look up one word in her French dictionary. 

My final rhetorical question is why would anyone give the designation GUI 9 to the A and E components of Lambda Orionis to such a gentleman? The 2 stars have a huge wide separation of 151". Everyone else going back in history would have observed these 2 stars are more besides. But never mind! I'm only thinking out loud. 

Clear skies eventually, Aubrey.

Delighted that Valerie could rescue the situation Aubrey!

It seems the designation may first have appeared in Aitken's double star catalogue of 1932, so it may have been a posthumous 'award' for the recently deceased Guillaume.

Clear skies,
Finbarr.

Hello Aubrey,

Apologies for the dealy replying to you - it was a mad week with a few work issues to deal with.

Thanks for sending your well wishes. Thankfully, I'm back to full strength, so the next clear night I'll be out with my scope and pencils - I can't wait!

Clear skies,

Darren.
