“Bob and Hilkka lived in a small modern home in Barrow in Furness. He worked on the submarines there. worked for a defence company at some stage and had made a few trips with them to USA for training etc. He was softly spoken and quite a private man. He was very happy with Hilkka, but was discreet about his other family.

“During WW2 he trained with the RAF at Perth, Scotland. His son Michael became a Dr and we think that he practices in Manchester. Steven married Pauline and had a daughter, Lauren. Pauline died in September 1995 and Steven was very distraught. We understand that Bob passed away in 2009 and unfortunately have lost touch with the family since then.”

This information is taken from an email sent to Stephanie Thompson by Philip Twyman who married her cousin Carolyn (nee Booker). They visited with Bob regularly when they lived in the UK.

I only know of Stephen’s existence from email, where contact was informed of him from a telegram. I could not find him in England birth index. I did find evidence that his parents may have moved to Canada, so perhaps he was born there.

According to email from Philip Twyman, Stephen married Pauline and had a daughter called Lauren. Pauline died in September 1995 – see notes for Robert John Berridge.
