    What happened to him?

    My gt uncle David Hamilton Brazell sailed to Freemantle on 15 December 1925. He died in Brisbane on 17 July 1961. How can I find out what happened in the intervening years? Did he marry? Where did he go? etc. Any suggestions will be gratefully received! Penny:confused:
