Both Richard and Walter were born in Hamburg, Germany. They had a sister who possibly moved to the far east and an adopted brother who moved to America.
Richard removed the 'e' from the end of Philippe when he became a British citizen. He was with the German U-boats in WW1 and the British army in WW2.
Richard had 2 children - 1 girl (my wife) and 1 son all living in the UK.
Walter went to America, settled in Florida and became an artist. He had one son called Robert who we have discovered is now dead. Robert had 2 or 3 daughters who live in the USA.
