    Hugh , thanks for the additional info, Regret i seem to be having problems
    opening that big file that came with the e-mail!, just keep going round in
    circles can you help? attached here is Fathers Brother - Harry - and his wife
    who i knew as Aunty Maude, they had sons, one was Ron, the other ??? Ron - s
    sons were slightly younger than me eg may be around 48-50 now , i also have
    pics Ron serving in N. Africa in ww2, MY father spoke of brother Lewis, AND
    sister Kate , one or both may have migrated to Canada before the War. In
    Australia older houses used to have - sleep outs - ( small self contained
    dwellings in the back garden) Norman used to have a work mate - Brian - who
    lodged with him for many years , I met Brian several times he was ok , but
    used to get drunk a lot after work and weekends. When Norman passed away in
    78, Brian moved on i think.
