Hi, for no particular reason have just tapped in my dad's name and 'Holyhead'to Google, I linked to this site  and found some old posts of yours which made me quite exited.. I saw Ronald Lydon mentioned (my dad) and the names of his brothers and sisters. Also my Grandmother was Manson and Galway is probably where my Grandfather came from. My Dad was born in Lowestoft I think, (his dad, my Grandfather was an officer in The Coastguard in Holyhead)
He joined The Royal Navy, as did my Uncle William (Bill)...

I am fascinated that you have been looking into a part of your family tree which touches mine..
Excuse me if this is a bit random.

Jon
