Here's hoping that manged to 'click' with each other - it must have been strange meeting your father as adult to adults. You could submit your story to the 'Success' board.

Out of interest - Were the Preston addresses red herrings, or was Nottingham a half way meeting point?

The last time i saw him was in Dover in 1974 and yes i suppose a phone call out of the blue maybe not the way to go about things but wrote 20 to 30 letters 2 yrs ago no reply may be he wants to be left alone x

Its far better to write - it gives people the opportunity to consider their reply.

It's always possible that your Dad hasn't told his current partner about you; If he were to answer the phone within his partners hearing, he might well deny that he is related.
