Hello Glyn, when you say "still trying to trace" do you have a previous thread on him?


glyn Report 22 May 2013 21:57

Yes dated 28th April

Here's a link to that thread.

Glyn, the best thing to do is to add a request to the bottom of the previous thread saying that you're still looking for info - that moves it to the top of the boards so people will see it. I'm afraid it's against Genes terms & conditions to have more than one thread about a person.

I'll nudge the old thread up.

EDIT: Here's the link I forgot to put in!
