Wow,,, yes forget that time goes on,and more and more records appear.
Not getting any younger myself.

On looking at Dorothy Edith Dyer [married Black] that one of her sons lived in Chilliwack.
I visited Chilliwack in 1980 my then husband knew a guy working in Salisbury who emigrated to Canada and ended up marrying/settling in Chilliwack. What a coincidence.

Hello again,My goodness how the years go by.
Have had another look at this,but its a difficult one.
Have you looked in detail at the SHAMA family in the Alexandria area 1940s.
There are actually three other Shama Births entered in Consular Births 1916-1920, for Alexandria.
Edith Shama, Marcel M Shama,and Robert Shama.

Consular Marriage, Edith Shama 1945 Cairo to Hibbert. May be a lead for you.
Not much help,but good luck, Brionne.

Notice that Edward Robert Udall, Probate,states his death  as 21st January 1940 at New Inn,West End Southampton.
Out of interest, given the awful constant Nazi bombing raids on Southampton during this period,was this how he lost his life. Brionne.

Very recently have unearthed the correct person on the Minnedosa sailing to Montreal 1923 sept.
William Macpherson age 22,listed as a passenger, turns out to be an interesting guy,Walter Dugald Macpherson,pre ww2 flying ace,later London solicitor born 1901 Kensington,death 1991.
His correct details are given on the St Albans Border Crossing for this Minnedosa sailing,Sep 1923.
My initial interest being the Humphries family also on board from Winterbourne Stoke, Salisbury,wife being a distant Dyer cousin of my mother.
There is plenty of information re Walter Dugald Macphersons well known flying career,and his plane on line. For anyone interested Cheers Brionne.
