Christopher Report 9 May 2011 09:56

I'm trying to find so information on my mothers natural father.

I have very little information except he was called Jack/John Pillings and was in the Royal Sussex Rgt during WWII. He would have been based in the North East during this time.

I also believe he and his family were involed in the upholstery trade in the South of the country.

Any Info would be greatly appreciated.
