Thank you so much.

(FreeBMD have him as DELHAYS, so I didn't spot him!)

I will pass on all the info to my cousin for her to see if he links to her tree.

The Cordiale family lived at Roslyn, next to the old lock-up in Ewell village

Doreenie's father was James Cordiale (deceased by the time of the marriage).

I think "Doreenie Cordiale" was born Dorothy Martha Cordial (mmn Baker) in West Ham in 1899. Father James Cordial, a sergeant in the Royal Artillery per the 1901 census (though the army record shows that he was discharged to pension in 1897).

On the 1918 marriage register she described her father as a Gas Company director.  When sister Winifred (who was a witness to the 1918 marriage) married in 1927 she described the father's occupation as gas inspector.

COMPLETED WITH THANKS Mystery RAF officer
« Reply #33 on: Thursday 22 March 18 18:39 GMT (UK) »
I have passed all the information to my cousin.

She doesn't recognise the names, but her father was stationed at some of the same places as Roger Amedee DELHAYE in WW2.  There is always the possibility that when Roger died in 1944 photos were printed as memorials, and that is how it ended up in her gran's collection.

My cousin has asked me to pass on her gratitude to everyone who contributed to this search.  Also, from me, a massive thank you to you all.
