I am sure a few of you have maybe seen this image before. It is, once again, of my 'Ever Elusive Uncle Leslie'.
He married for a short time. No knows what happened to the marriage, or really much about the bride.
I think the marriage was before the war, and as far as everyone knows, there were no kids.
He died in about 1965 at the age of 47.
He served in North Africa during the war, as well as Burma with the Chindits.
I am sure as a baby I got to meet him. But as an adult, I did not.
I wish I had.
Towards the end of his life he worked at the Cochran Ship Yards in Selby, where his father worked. He also lived with his father after my folks move to America.
Mom says he owned a car, but did not have a drivers license. My dad would on occasion drive the car.
This is his motor bike, and maybe some one in England can confirm it, but I believe the 'L' meant 'learner'.
I have made a little progress in his search. I have gotten his death certificate so I can now apply for his war records. Hopefully it will lead some where.
