Hi Danielle
Thanks for looking it up for me, what a shame they didn't know each other, as they have a remarkably similar story. I wish I knew why he took off like that, and also why he suddenly returned home after ten years without even letting them know he was coming! I know the ship he was on in 1932 burned in the London Dock, and I think he returned home shortly after that, so maybe he decided to retire as he would have been nearly 60. Life was never the same for mum and her family after he returned, and I sometimes think they would have been better off without him. Mum (90) and Dad are coming here to stay for Christmas, and she will be so thrilled when I tell her I have found out what happened to him when he left them, and that he was telling the truth. Thanks for your help.
Best wishes for Christmas and the new year
Anne
