« on: Thursday 28 February 19 15:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,
I have been asked if I have any information of a Arnold R Swinnerton born 1923?
Perth Western Australia.
He did marry a Margaret Craigie McNair in 1945.
I would be grateful if anyone can find Arnold anywhere.
thanks,
bswinno.

Arnold served in WW11 -

Arnold Ray Swinnerton
Birth Date - 4 Oct 1923
Birth Place - Wagin WA
Year Range - 1939 - 1948
Enlistment Place - Claremont Western Australia
Service Number - W23200
Next of Kin - Albert Swinnerton

Do you know if Arnold's middle name is Ray or Roy? As some Electoral Registers have him as Ray/Roy. Also are you sure these Arnold and Margaret are no longer with us?

Hi Jen,

Yes no longer with us Arnold has just recently passed.
There seems to be some confusion as to Arnolds second name.
You are correct both Ray and Ron are shown on line.
Does Next of Kin say if father or brother?

Thanks for your help.

Hi swinno,

Your profile shows you are at 'Liverpool'   I assume that is Liverpool, NSW.  There's Swinnerton Engineering at West Gosford, and perhaps they may have knowledge of the older generations of Swinnertons.
