This information was kindly found for me by a poster on this Forum. I'm now looking for any reference to a son of Peter and Helena Harris.His name was JOHN HARRIS.He had an older brother called George.We don't know of any other siblings (yet).
During WW2 John Harris was based for a while in England. He visited at least two of his relatives while he was over here.From a photograph taken, in England, in 1942 we estimate his date of birth to be around 1918 / 1920.On the back of one of the photographs it says that he was with the Canadian Air Force. He is in uniform and has two stripes on his left sleeve (Cpl?).
I know that this is very little information to go on - but I still hope for miracles....
