Thanks for the info. These are both my dads uncles he never knew and at 89 and unwell its nice to be able to share the detail as he has often wondered what happened. The family was so fragmented by early deaths that a lot of info lost or hidden. I know the sisters never really got over the loss and it must have been a truly horrid time for everyone.

Thanks again. Nick
