    Default S/L Royd Martin FENWICK-WILSON AFC

    Does anyone who frequents the board have details on S/Ldr Royd Martin FENWICK-WILSON (34218) latter Wing Commander Fenwick-Wilson, AFC.

    I have details via Hugh Hallidays excellent site, I am after a photograph if possible and possible contact with his family. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction please.

    All the best from a cold but sunny Devon.

    Steve, look up the Fenwick-Wilson's living in British Columbia in the phone book. Ancestry.com records Royd and Virginia Fenwick-Wilson in the BC phone book 1995-2002. So the three Fenwick-Wilson's still living there shall no doubt be related.

    Cheers, Tom
