Just checked my available data. Here are the average nominal allowences (the difference between the max. feet length and the nominal last length):
- Any 348 last by Crockett & Jones:~ 1.3 sizes
- Any last by Crockett & Jones: ~ 1.9 sizes
- Any last with a UK size: ~ 2.0 sizes
That appears to confirm your impression to size down half a size. Note, however, that my sample of ratings for the first two groups is rather small and has a large varience. On a personal note: I believe, noone should go below a nominal allowence of 1.5 sizes for the UK or US systems.
