Hi Dave

I'll be taking out the "THICK HEAD" award for myself.redf)

Fannie Thornton WALKER. It's funny because when I was looking for Fanny I was thinking about another Fanny I was looking for in NLA and I found her under Fannie. This tells me I can't cope with three thinkings at once.:confused:

cheers

Hello crankypants,

I can't see a service record for Harry but the name is too much of a coincidence. I checked the Boer War too and for Ernest Woodford.

I've looked in Qld. and WA for both of them without any luck.

No sign of a Will in Victoria for Ernest.

No sign of Ernest Woodford's death in NZ. :)

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking. No, I don't think so. Una and other sibling lived in Mosman. So E/R Warringah or North Sydney.
