Re: Father

Anthony Snider Dowling is quiet elusive :eek:

As yet i have not found a military record in Australia for him.

Do you have any further info on him? Did he have siblings etc.
Are you able to say where you got his parents names from? Certificates?

I did how ever find this on FMP, a incoming passenger list to Australia.

Thank you for your reply's. Additional information. Anthony Snider Dowling Born Calcutta, India 1893. Other information already posted. . Canada in 1940 required a citizenship revue. My father wrote on it that he was a staff Sargeant in the medical corp. attached to HQ. I have contacted the Australian military. They claim he had an alias. I knew my father for 45 years and never once was he deceptive. In reply to questions about his past he always answered "too Painful". Would mr gibbo e-mail me the full page of the ships list or where to find it. Regards

Im sorry but im unable to get the shipping list again. I got it from Findmypast during one of their "free" periods. Maybe someone who has access might be able to get it for you.

Are you able to say where you got the names of Anthony's parents from please? Just some things dont seem to be adding up and im trying to sort through it.

Im not doing anymore on this one at the moment until i hear back from Eardley on where he got Anthony's parents names from etc. so we can make sure we are following the right path.

Dave, i have been through all the WW1 records with all different combinations of names etc and i cant find any that even seem remotely like him :confused:
