I believe this is my grandfather. He never married my grandmother.
She gave me this information before she died in 1984. My father was her only child and he died five years ago. I have been researching my family tree and this is the missing link. I have heard he was a director of C.S.R before his retirement. The photo on the war records show a strong family resemblance to my father, and to my siblings.If anyone knows more about this man I would be happy to hear from them. I want nothing but to know who he was.
