Hi, I saw your posting and at first thought it would not apply to my lot as it seemed later than mine were in Guiana, on reflection I wondered if you could check for two possibles
The first is George Ernest ANDERSON who managed an estate in BG, I have a note that states he retired to Kent in 1945 but unsure when he returned to England
The second is his son Francis John ANDERSON who seems to disapear completly and it was wondered if he stayed in BG
Any help appreciated

Many thanks for looking for me, much appreciated.
I suspect the G ANDERSON as a member of the football club is not mine but will keep note of him.

Many thanks for your help
