  • Our Dad was a bit of a character-we still enjoy hoots of laughter at some of his antics.He married mum(Shirley Anna Savage)as soon as he got home from war on October 3rd.He enjoyed life to the full ,until he Fractured his Left femur in a Cambridge Home in 1999.We(his 4 children),would like to find out something about the ballot farm we lived on in KatiKati area(corner Work Road and Main Road)-i.e.what number was it?-where are there some details about it?3 of us were small children there until his main war injury forced him to sell up ,and we moved to Cambridge. Thankyou.
