MADAM: I’ve been try­ing to find some old friends from the 1960s and I hope some­one might be able to help. They are Hugh Patrick Mc­Cabe who mar­ried Ada El­iz­a­beth ( Betty) Ni­cholls at St. Mary’s Church in Goos­nargh, near Pre­ston, Lan­cashire, in 1956. Both were born in 1934.

I first met the McCabes dur­ing the au­tumn of 1961 while serv­ing in West Ger­many with the Cana­dian Army. Hugh’s brother, Jim, served in the reg­i­ment with me and gave me their ad­dress in Her­ford, Ger­many, where he was serv­ing with 7 Sig­nals Regt., Royal Sig­nals. Their mar­ried quar­ters quickly be­came a week­end “home away from home” for me over the next four years, and I en­joyed their hospi­tal­ity im­mensely.

In 1965 they were posted to Sin­ga­pore while I re­turned to Canada. They later re­turned to Eng­land. Trag­i­cally, their el­dest daugh­ter, Betty, died in an ac­ci­dent in 1966. They had two other daugh­ters: June, who was prob­a­bly born in 1958 and Cor­rine, born in 1963. — 5259 SUTHER­LAND ROAD, PEACH­LAND,
