Percy Harold Fortey
« on: Monday 23 April 18 15:17 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on this fellow born 1885 in Bristol and died 1961 in Folkestone. There is a connection somewhere with Arthur Brough the actor/producer in Folkestone. Any help in this direction would be most gratefully received. Rumour had it he also acted as Errol Flynn's stand-in!

Can't help with the acting profession but he is a schoolmaster in 1922 on a passenger list entry.
Age 38. 

Think his death was 1964 not 1961.
