All we can do is collect snippets in the hope that one will be googled and bring a response from a family member.

From R E Jones' diary it seems darling Marj's birthday was the 18th December.

Also mention of a Miss G F Flower of Southampton, possibly a nursing sister.

As well , there's mention of R E Jones receiving a letter from Hilda, and immediately after that it mentioned his mother had received a letter from him. So was Hilda possibly a sister?

It might seem I'm going off track, but you just never know with hunts of this kind what can turn something up.

This could be Gwen.....

Her family when Gwen was two years old......

John Montague FLOWER  36 Clothier Assistant born Beveridge in Dorset   
His wife Annie Hilda FLOWER aged 32 born Brighton in Sussex.   
James Montague FLOWER,   their son aged 2 born Southampton   
Gwendoline Frances FLOWER their daughter aged 2 born Southampton

Wishful thinking but it would be good if a descendant knew something about R E Jones!

Towards the end of the diary : Sun 2nd  (Oct 1945?) Fine, hot. Bowls etc to G & V. Airmail letter to Marj. "

Tuesday 4th - Posted letter A/m to Marj.

Mon 17th - Posted A/m to Marj

" Sat 27th Fine. Arrived Liverpool 2pm and made fast 4pm. Welcomed by Mayor & Navy & Army Officials. Landing routine completed by 7pm. Am already now to go. Letter from M & Dad."

He returned to Liverpool 27 October 1945. So did his family go back to UK? Or did they remain in Australia?

What do you think?   ???

On 4th March 1947 Dorothy Marjorie JONES, housewife, aged 35, together with daughter aged 6, sailed on the 4th March 1947 from Southampton for Hong Kong, China on board the Strathmore.
Their last address was given as 28 Rutland Road, Skegness. They intended to remain in Hong Kong.

However, there's more to come.
