Family Search; emails &letters.
At the bottom of the box I found some air letters written to Dad from a lady living in Liverpool.
She was the mother of Dad's best friend who was killed in the desert campaign. The friend's name was Joseph Weir and I don't know his mother's Christian name as she signed her letters "mother Weir".
My father must have really grieved for his friend and wrote a beautiful poem in his memory.
I can see from 192.com that there are a lot of Weirs still in Liverpool and I wondered if any of them are related to Joseph and his mother.
They lived at 14 Allenby Road in the early 1940s. I would love to hear from anyone who knew Joe and might like to see some photographs and a pen and ink sketch of his battlefield grave done by my dad.
There are a lot of photographs of my father with one particular man and I wonder if it is Joe.
