Rohan - I recently spoke to J Sheekey about some memorabilia that you had agreed to collect from me please


Hi Rohan
I was wondering if you could scan the photo of Dad Brewer to this site. I would like to a copy of it on behalf of his relatives I am a great-grandson of his. I will also look into possible photos etc that may be held by some of his relatives and pass them onto you if I can. This may take a while.
Geoff Puckridge


Hi Rohan...welcome. The photos sound good and we'd be pleased to have them. LH side panel, click on "Photo", browse and upload - it's pretty straight-forward from there. If you have dates and names, add them as well. Let me know if you have any problems...Julie
