I simply hold ILR, and I have a very beautiful stamp in my current passport, but what we need is proof I had ILR on 10 September 1997 (son's birthday).
My husband has a South African passport with ILR stamped in it issued in 1989, valid until 1994; then his first UK passport issued 1999, valid until 2009. I have only my current ILR stamp in my current passport.
This is the problem. My husband, son and I all lost/were robbed of the passports in this time period. My son has been using his American passport up until now, but we have been experiencing extreme stress getting him back into the UK when we travel because his US PP with his own ILR stamp was stolen. I went ahead and provided seven hundred kabillion documents and nearly as many pounds Sterling for a new No Time Limit stamp to be put into my US passport, but the home office dissuaded us from doing that for my son, since he qualifies for a British passport. They were very nice and said it was cheaper and easier just to get him a British passport instread but that's not proving the case!
