  1. Hi Dunreet Yes I will keep asking for the photo Pleased to hear that you found out about your grandfather, I would treasure the photo of my uncle and I'm sure it really means nothing to my cousin's husband but what can I do. And thank you to the others that have provided info about service info Keep searching Down Under ---------- Post added 24-04-2013 at 15:57 ---------- Hi Dunreet and everyone else who tried to help, just to let you know I finally received the photo of my uncle Very pleased Down Under
  2. Hi Dunreet Thank you for your email, my Mum did have plenty of siblings but all gone now, I have found out that a cousin who has passed away now her husband has a photo of my uncle and his medal and ribbons, I couldn't believe it, it's just by chance that I phoned him as we have never seen each other for years, when I offered to pay for him to send them for me as he is no relation to my uncle, he said he didn't know if he wanted to let them go. I feel very upset, he has said that he will get a copy of the photo and send it to me but that was about three months ago, nothing yet, I phoned him again but still nothing. I will try the Star too just in case

Hi Kiwi Guy Thank you for your information, I didn't realise about the Australian soldiers but I will make enquires at the Library Archives in Perth when I am next in there.It won't be for a while as we have just put our house on the market so pretty busy just now. I will let you know what I found out down the track Down under
  5. Hello Bellashaw93 The only Margaret that I knew when I worked on the switchboard there in the 60's was Margaret Merril nickname Bunty, she married Brian who was a chef at the hotel Downunder
  6. Thank you multiparvo1, that is probably my family tree as I have that information, I would really really like to find a photo but it seems a bit impossible, thanks again Down Under
  7. Thank you PopT, I don't know where he worked but it is something else to try, if only I had asked questions when my mum was alive, I now live in Australia so can't just pop into the Library to ask questions but I won't give up the search Thanks again Down Under

  10. I used to work at the Grand Hotel in the early sixties on the switchboard with Carol and Bunty. The manager was Farquah Macleod and John Spitzer was a live in resident, through his work John new all the stars and once took me to the Gaumont theatre across from the hotel to meet Shirley Bassey who was doing a show with The John Barry Seven. We worked shifts 7am to 3pm and 3pm to 11pm and an elderly man did the night shift. Met a lot of stars who stayed there when doing shows at the City Hall across the road. I now live in Australia
