My Uncle Phillip Meninsky painted for the National Ballet. He did some of the most amazing pastels:) Also he was a prisoner of war in a Japanese prison camp and the sketches/drawings he did and hid are now in The Imperial War Museum and Australia and were used as evidence as to the horrendous things they did to the prisoners. l think Searle hid some too and was friends with Phillip.
Also My Grandfather Bernard Meninsky.......

One of my Grandfathers was a bigamist, married twice here UK, 3 times in Australia claiming to be Bachelor or Widowe, no divorces or deaths of wives found yet.
Another was kicked out of the family firmly by his grandfather for having an illegitimate child (my mum) while married to someone else, that same grandfather did something similar and a connection to me carried his death certificate around for years having been reported killed in the Great War, and there is more but can't put it in here. :-D
