Hi Everyone,
I am looking for some help in a project I am helping my Dad with in searching for his long lost uncle. What we know is he travelled to London from Ireland in the late 1930s we have him on the electoral register in Camden in 1938 and we know he was still in that area until 1941 and that he apparently used to extinguish flares that the Germans dropped pre bombs during the ww2 blitz, unfortunately that's all we know and after extensive online re search I cant find any more clues. His name was Joe Shedwell however he may have went under the name John at some point so the story goes. Any help is appreciated
