how often I've thought of you and your family over these 16 years. Kaye
and almost took off by car again a couple of years ago. I'll send you a
copy of the drama separately. Anyway, Val we're still working on it.
I have spoken to Joyce a few times, the most recent when our grand-
daughter Amy went to Melb. for the first time, to meet up with her
fiance Dean who was on leave from Cerberus Base and I asked if Joyce
could possibly meet Amy on arrival. Fortunately Joyce was going to
town to change trains to Pamela's and was able to go early and be there
for Amy. They had a great time and I was so thankful for that.
I'm thrilled that you have got on to this site, Val, and so pleased you
have info on our great uncles. I'd love a copy of any material at all
that you have. It's been so hard to get anything from the free-sites
that I've tried up to now. Joyce told me you had moved from McKillop
St, which was the only address I had for you.
My e-mail address is -- worthtnk@... ( the "nk"means'and
Kaye'). I showed Amy and Jill her Mum ( our only daughter) the video
tape of that wonderful re-union we all had in '89.
I've had a wonderful breakthru' via the net last Dec, finding that My
GFather GEORGE WORTH from WA was really GEO STOREY of Bendigo
b.1872,hence 4 or more generations of our WA mob have all this time
since 1903 or earlier been under an assumed name that he took on when
leaving Vic and his family around 1893, never to go back again and
dying with his secret in Sept 1941. I was 3 at the time and saw him
give me a weak V-for-Victory just before he died.
This is on-going currently with my cousin Brian Worth in Canb, and very
exciting as you can imagine. A whole new identity and family. I have
started making contact with the BILL TOON fam. and looking to contact
the SEELEY fam. in Melb. as soon as I can. You wouldn't know of these
names would you Val ? They are in-law names to the STOREY family.
I'd better stop this now and carry on later. Wonderful to see your
posting and look forward to on-going contact again with you. Hope your
family are well - please let us know about them all Val.
Love and kindest regards to you all, Trev and Kaye
