Hi all,
nearly a year has passed and still no nearer to finding Ken's whereabouts,but am still trying. Many thanks to all those people that have helped me in this search. All the best in 1913.

Hi Colin

It has been a lonely journey for you. Will have another read through to refresh my memory, and see if I have any flashes of inspiration, but no promises of any good ideas.

I've become a grandma in the last year. Baby Edward born June.

Best wishes

Margaret

Regards to you all,
Colin.

Hi All,
just a nudge with a little update. I have now found the new name of Kenneth's adopted brother and his whereabouts, that's the good news. Still no sign of Kenneth yet. Will keep on searching.
Regards
Colin.

Hi all, Help from Australia required please.
Are there any members that could find in archives/newspapers etc a report of KWH arriving in Australia in 1962 as a stowaway on the ship Oriana. He boarded the ship at Columbo, Sri Lanka bound for Fremantle after hitch hiking from England. He served four weeks in Fremantle Prison for this. On release, he was allowed to stay in Australia.It is not known how long he did stay, maybe only a short while. Any information such as his age, nationality etc would be very helpful. Thank you for any help.
PS Have sent a request to Library Of Australia.

Hi all, another bit of info. Kenneth was an apprentice at RAF Halton 1953 - 1956, working on engines. He was billeted in room 11/2. This intake of apprentices have formed their own club and it's called the 7T5 Club. Maybe, this will jog a memory of any of his fellow apprentices.Still searching.

Hi All,
lots have happened this last year, but still no signs of Kenneth.
We are still searching. Is there anyone in Canada that knows of the Rocking K D Ranch, Sangudo ie, proprietor's nationality, age etc. Please PM me with any details.
Many thanks,

Colin

I confess to not wanting to read the entire thread but I did skim through a little because I could not understand this

'Rocking K D Ranch, Sangudo ie'

but I see back a page or two that this is a place in Alberta Canada

so I googled it ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sangudo,_Alberta

'In the 2011 Census, Sangudo had a population of 320 living in 149 of its 177 total dwellings'

I would feel pretty sure that if a letter was sent addressed 'Sangudo Alberta Canada' it would probably reach the addressee :-)

a little more googling finds that it is in area code 780

eg http://www.centralalberta.worldweb.com/Sangudo/ToursActivities/GuestRanches/

so you could try contacting that ranch to see whether they know anything about the one you are inquiring about


I am editing because I had got confused ... KWH is the man's birth name but is not his present name ... the mother he visited from Australia was his adoptive mother ? :-S

if I have not got it right and he does go by the name KWH

http://www.canada411.ca

just look for the name in question in Alberta, there is a listing in 780 with no further address details


where did you get the name Rocking KD Ranch ??

You do know that it doesn't matter if you never 'nudge' a thread, google will find it all the same if someone is looking ...

I thought of something to keep you busy :-)

go to google

do this search

site:www.canada411.ca "sangudo"

this will get you every telephone listing in Sangudo Alberta

don't be shocked when you see '6,960 results'

when you go to the last page of results you will see there are only 183 results and many of them are duplicates, and the last 30 or so are irrelevant

You could probably rule out French or Slavic or Germanic names for example, and that seems to account for a majority

I'm not sure what you could do with these but there is the info if it does any good !
