Do any one know of people who worked on the Island of St Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean for a company called DWRS Diplomatic Wireless Relay Services in the 1970s.

My paternal grandfather was at St Helena during his stint in the Marines WW1 and I found a lot of history about the island on 'Google'

It may be worth trying - good luck.

There are quite a few good websites on St Helena on the internet. This includes one on geneaology. If you have any more specific information please let me know, as a work colleague is from the Island and still has quite a lot of family there and he mum goes back every year or so. AL
