George J. Carroll contacted me on 5 April 2005. He had found out that his mother had served with the American forces during World War 2 in the Brisbane area. In 1944 George's mother was married to a Bernard Foster so her name on the records could have been either:-

Kathleen Feeney (maiden name)
Kathleen Foster
Kathleen Carroll

Her date of birth was 19 June 1918.

Doing K.P. Duty 1944
Kay Carroll, Kessell's Rd., Upper Mt. Gravatt, Brisbane, QLD

 

Does anyone remember her?

 


 

I received an e-mail on 4 July 2006 from Thomas Crissey of Saint Louis, MO, who found a brass plaque that reads "E.H. Hauschultz, Colonel, US Army" while he was remodelling his house. Thomas Crissey advised me  that it is a very nice plaque and he was sure that Colonel Hauschultz, or his family would like it back.

 

Please contact me if you know E.H. Hauschultz.
