Dear Sir I am hoping that among your names that you may have one John 'Doc' Holliday. We last saw him and his family in Aborfield approx 1976? We first met them at Larkhill in 1971 as we were next door neighbours in Lightfoot Road and I used to babysit his two children Janice and Anthony. John is (was) married to Maureen. John and my father, Brian Flack were great mates and very often would sojourn to Southampton where my aunt and her husband owned a pub, the Queensland in Clovelly Road. Although my father was in the RAOC, John was in the REME. It would be lovely to catch up on old times with John and his family. If you are in contact with him or know where he can be contacted, an email to let me know, would be very much appreciated. Yours in hope!! Lyn Prescott ( nee Flack) Tel 01208 880327
