Finding Places of Births of Deceased AirmenNot only is he venturing into the world of genealogy, but more importantly WELSH genealogy! I've spent many days toiling over my Welsh roots.....Kathryn Jones, daughter of David Jones, the son of Thomas Jones and his wife Mary Thomas. It's tough! Anyway, the Hugh G Hughes i could find in the time frame were: Hugh G Hughes born 3rd quarter of 1911 in Ffestiniog, mothers maiden name Edwards. Hugh G Hughes born 2nd quarter of 1912 in Carnarvon, mothers maiden name Jones Hugh G Hughes born 1st quarter of 1913 in Merthyr Tydfil mothers maiden name Williams. Now i have had a quick look for a marriage between a Hugh Hughes and a Perry (?) but couldn't come up with anything. Interestingly though i came across a H J Glanvor Hughes married to Perry Hughes in the 1901 Welsh census though with no children but 3 servants! Only thing is Glanvor Hughes is 50 at the time and Perry is 35, but its still possible and its an quite an unusual name to go on with the same initials? They were living at 22 Capran (?), Llanfechall, Anglesey. This one needs a bit more work, but i'm afraid i'm off out for a bit, so someone else might like to take the baton! Cheers, Tom ....Read More.thorne83 on 8th March 2009 09:53:02

Three More Met Branch Officers About Whom Little Is KnownPeter, I hope you're well - I was in your part of the world earlier this evening, delivering a few thousand tonnes of aggregate to a worksite between Reading and Basingstoke :) Your man Jones - something is ringing bells in my head that he was at Hemswell in late '44? I could be getting very confused of course, but a former 170 Sqn RG, who lives by me, has mentioned a Thomas Jones up at Hemswell. He remembers him because he was another Taff, albeit a well-spoken one. I'm seeing him for a couple of pints on Thursday lunchtime - I'll ask him. I note that what I'm saying is contra to what has been posted further up this thread in relation to his appearances in the AFL... More to follow :) All the very best, Greg ....Read More.greg on 13th March 2016 03:12:02
