Message for "Heywood" re: CWGC/Martin Duffy on SS Boorara
« on: Tuesday 10 January 17 13:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi. I only came across this forum after searching for a ship, SS Boorara, as the CWGC are trying to contact relatives of 4 crew who were killed and are buried locally to me. A search on Google brought up an old thread from 2007 where 'Heywood' indicated they were related to the same Martin Duffy as the CWGC are trying to find a relative of.

If anyone knows them can they let them know (I joined today only to try to let them know about this but unfortunately without posting 3 times first I can't send a private message to them).

Here is a link to the CWGC request for information on relatives:

Thank you and my sincere apologies for knowingly using the forum incorrectly.

Thanks myluck  :)

Hello PerkyP,

This is intriguing. When you have made three postings you can pm people and receive replies. - I will try it anyway and if not, you can just make a reply here. Welcome to Rootschat by the way.  :)
