Sorry Tedscout
I just realised that I was having a "moment".  Of course the Edward that you were talking about is the same Edward and is Harold's son.

Blame it on a late night when I read your post.

Boy, do I feel dumb!

Hi All,

I have had a quick look at Vic BDM and nothing is coming up on their online service.
Yes, Tedscout, he did go to WA.

Hi All
From the information that I have been given, the birth year for Harold was 1887.

I have sent an e-mail to the Mt Gambier Historical Society asking if they have an details on Harold or his father, Edward.† I thought that maybe if Edward was a surgeon there might be some sort of record.† Apparently, at the time, Mt Gambier was quite a big town.

Will keep you all posted

Hi Barossa Pearl

Itís Paul.  Iíve changed email addresses and lost yours!  Iíve found something on great grandfatherís admission records at Sunset - the old menís home.  It has his motherís name listed as Elizabeth Alexander.  It also has his place of birth not as Mount Gambier but as maybe a derivative of Colchester....writing is hard to read.  Fatherís name as Edward James West - occupation listed as doctor.
