Look who departed Southampton on 15th December 1950 on board the Corfu bound for Hong Kong……..

Raymonr Eric JONES aged 45 and married, a H K Govt Servant
Dorothy Marjorie JONES aged 39 and married (wife)
Daughter JONES aged 9
Their last address in the UK was 23 Rutland Rd, Skegness.
They were intending to stay in Hong Kong.

I think the name should be Raymond, but the image is not clear.

There's one more to type up.

Edwards, Coles, Smith, Nunley, Craddock, York, & Linnell (Northants) )

The Corfu left Southampton on the 20 August 1954 bound for Hong Kong.

On board were
Raymond Eric JONES aged 48 Govt Servant
Dorothy Marjorie JONES aged 42 Housewife
Daughter JONES aged 13
Daughter  JONES aged 2
Again their last address in the UK was 23 Rutland Rd, Skegness.

Perhaps daughter aged two given a second name after a person named in the diary?

Dee, you are awesome - Where did you get that information? Is there more to come? I guess we now need to get the HK end sorted - and Alison McEwan may have the knowledge to crack that end of it.  http://gwulo.com/node/9660

Thanks Muss - It's good to have a great outcome. Now to see if the HK end can be cracked.

It's been rather exciting, Muss.   :D

Helen, I'm afraid I have absolutely no skills in searching the Hong Kong end. However, we may be able to find a little more about Raymond's family in England....or Marjorie's......and that in itself could lead to learning more about Hong Kong.

I've joined the site  as suggested by PM, and have posted a link to this thread, and mentioned I have a little more information about the daughters.
