despair,

yes your details are correct, I have all these. Before this he was married to my auntie, he left soon after marriage for many years. Aunties sister had a child (my father), then left him with auntie. I suspect George may have been my dads father and so trying to trace his movements to see if he was in the same area as my grandmother and/or even the area where dad was born.

Thanks

In June 1942 he is listed as "missing" in fighting in Cyrenaica.A further report in 1943 has him "no longer missing" after having been reported as an Italian POW.
