Hannah Baird, (Floyd Williston's letter of Jan. 31 2011)


The above letter has just been brought to my attention. I am the ``dbthomson`` referred to in Floyd’s letter.

I have photographs, newspaper clippings and a copy of the page from the Book of Remembrance of the Merchant Navy as well as a copy of page 90 of that Book provided by the Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons.if you could provide me with Mr Williston`s email address or, if you would prefer give him mine, I would be pleased to give him copies of what I have on my grandmother.

I thoroughly enjoy and am amazed how much information keeps cropping up after all these years.

Thank you
Bill Thomson

I do not have Floyd's mail address.

If you can please send me copies of what you have, we will add the detail to our Athenia Pages.
