Can anyone help please. I am trying to find out what happened to a G Unlce. John Robert Henri, on approx 1901. Sometime between 1919 and 1935, he went missing, presumed in South Africa after the merchant vessel he was on had been torpedoed - he was rescued, but the rescue vessel was also torpedoed!! Although the family tried to trace him and make contact nothing was ever heard from him again. Can anyone help at all please to let me know if they know of any 'Hook's' now living in South Africa. John was born in Heacham Norfolk to John Reynolds Newton Hook and Henriette Catherine Charlotte Hook. Any help would be so gratefully received.
