    Francis, born 1912 Lewisham, London was in the 1950's living with his wife Eileen M (Delahoy) and daughter Josephine in St Germans Road, Forest Hill, Lewisham, London and died in Lewisham 2002.
    He doesn't reflect on FMP 1939 Census nor does his wife Eileen.
    In WWII he reportedly served as an Aircraft Mechanic in the RAF, with possible posting in Carribbean (?). Can't find him on FMP Military.
    Would like to add more details to his life story on my Family history narrative. if anyone can help.

    Another in Bermondsey with Elizabeth Ann at 26 Mill pond estate . These from electoral pages.

    This would be the one as his mother's maiden name was REA and Thomas Maurice O'CONNOR wed Mary Emily REA in 1905. :)

    I should have mentioned that I tracked Francis P. up to 1911 Census. It's his whereabouts from 1939 to 2002 where no info.
    OK now you have got 1939 sorted. Thanks.
    It was spoke about that he served in the RAF but I have not found in FMP

    I checked Fold3 with just the name and "RAF." It came back with 4 hits on "London Times," but I don't have an active subscription, so couldn't see details.
