They married in Jan 1946 and had 5 children. I was born in Catterick Military Hospital, three of my siblings were born in Germany and the youngest was made in Honk Kong in 1958.

I would love to chat to someone who served around that time to help me fill in the gaps or to their descendants who perhaps also attended Minden Row and Sek Kong schools (BSSA) in Honk Kong.

I am also looking for a book title covering those years. Any suggestions? Anyone read GWEILO (Memories of a Hong Kong childhood) by Martin Booth ISBN 0-385-60776-8
