Here’s a quick but important one that Jayne Howarth, fellow blogger for Pelsall passed on to me a couple of days ago, and wondered if any readers could help.
Can anyone help Pam Smith?
She has emailed with the following:
My name is Pam Smith . I live in Australia and I am trying to locate some information or a picture of Charlie Harrison who was born in Walsall.
The only information I have is that he lived in Woodbine Terrace, Brownhills. He had a sister Clarice. He was in the army as a dispatch rider. He was my Mum’s father.
We came from Oxford and emigrated to Australia back in 1970. Mum never knew her father and is now in her 80s and would really like to know more about him now. If anyone has anything it would be much appreciated.
It’s as simple as that. I think there was more than one Woodbine Terrace in Brownhills, but any information anyone can glean would be most welcome – and I know you lot like a challenge.
Comment here, or mail me please: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
