Hello and welcome to Rootschat  :)

We are not allowed to post names of persons who are, or likely to still be alive.
A quick search of the internet brings this where his daughter is named.

Other information about him is available. Here is Australian War Memorial Roll of Honour (for others to see)

I have very remote connections by marriage. Lancelot C's maternal grandmother was a Melvill; another Melvill married into the Simons family (Henry Minchin Simons, 1857 in Paddington, Middlesex). Henry was my 2nd cousin 3 times removed.....
