Thanks Melinda - shall try to call you one evening later in the week. And shall try to get the letter for Rodger I've been trying to draft, finalised & mailed off.

The person who you think of as Harold Cottle, and who is such a shadowy person from back in the far distant past of your grandfather's painful memory, was someone who we knew, well, as Arthur Harold Russell (commonly referred to as "Rus"). Though, that said, Rus was already in his 60s when he married Ian's Mum, who was only in her late 20s. So there is much we don't know about him as it seems he took many secrets to his grave, which we're only now trying to unravel, so that my husband Ian can have a better understanding of the man who was his Dad. Rus died in Goulburn NSW (where Ian's Mum lived & had a medical practice)in 1984, only a few months before his 97th birthday.
Look forward to chatting about all this.
Till then ...
warmest
Diane
