Hi Carol...

Otho / Otto QUAYLE is the brother of my paternal Grandmother.
Born [23 Dec ?] [1882?] (there is some confusion in the records, so 1882/1883) at Shavington, Cheshire.

Parents: Charles Hewitt QUAYLE and 3rd wife Annie GRIFFITHS / WRIGHT.

Otto married Gertrude Alberta Maria PEARSE, Dec 1918, Hendon Reg District, Middlesex.

One child: Robert QUAYLE. Born 1920 Hendon R D.

I did not know that he has a middle name C.... [Charles ? from his Grandfather ?]

1939-1945 :
(i) Commissioned Army Officer (Captain / Major ?) in Royal Artillery(?)
(ii) Special Service
(iii) Commando Regt

Post war: Foreign Office overseas posting to 'Africa'. - I think this may have been South Africa.

1950s?: in Melbourne, S Australia ; possibly also in New Zealand.

He may have married while living in in S Africa.

That is all I have on Robert QUAYLE, although we have built up a large database on the QUAYLE family.

Where do you fit in ?
