Thanks Sandra , that is brilliant . My mum , gran and grandad befriended an American G I who was called Bill Harnash { probably Wilbur ? } His mum Mary sent a beautiful silk scarf to my mum and Bill sent a signed book to my gran . They exchanged letters up to about 1948 ish . Bill survived the war in Europe and think he was in tanks . It would be nice to see if any war record exists too .
Regards
Alan

Thanks Sandra , that's another bit to add to the story .He wrote a letter in 1948 and signed off as Bill and Betty  , perhaps he did not marry her ?
Regards

The obituary for Clara Lowenstein mother (December 1979)  of Eva mentions grandchildren but not sure these are Harnash grandchildren  :-\ Could be Ludwig Lowenstein children  ???
