Hi again, found a Colin Charles Snashall on the national archives site...staing same mother and her address as NOK until he married. The year of birth is the same as Howard's, but I have just reread Howard's service record and on page 18 a Statutory Declaration dated 1950 states his birth as 09/09/1922, Alberton, SA.
