4 Left to Find

Post by Mark Beswick on Thu Jan 15, 2015 10:11 pm

The WAFC player project is almost done - Found Peter Charlesworth today Razz

I have only left to find the 4 following players - any clues or ideas welcome - I'm out of leads

Alex J Lockwood 1948 player - (maybe incorrect first name)
Brian (Moo) Campbell (1951 Player) - (maybe incorrect first name)
Ross A Garrett (Maybe ex PAC) - 1955
Alan John McDonald 1954 (Found him as Alan McDonald Stable Hand in Elec Rolls 1954)- Believed to be in Sydney - Alive???

Everyone else from WW2 I think I have located

Mark,
Just a thought...maybe Alan McDonald might have been related to the other McDonald who played for us in the 70's, the tall forward?

Hi Aldo

No - He isn't related. I spoke to Alan's daughter 3 years ago. She has since died and her brothers changed their last name - Apparently the dad walked (McDonald) left when they were young and they all lost contact. All they knew was he visited around 1980 and married again in Sydney. I got a copy of his marriage certificate at the state library and know he was born in Richmond Victoria 1927-1929 - I also know his father was unknown but his mum in an engagement notice was Ms Parker. They married 1954 in Mile End. Vic BDM indexes stop in 1920 and I cant get hold of NSW electoral rolls to see how many Allan McDonalds are listed. No doubt there would be many.
