  • Notes  Married:
    • This marriage year is a guesstimate. The following years after Nov 1945 military discharge, and birth of first son in 1947. Sister's Pauline and Margaret both agree most likely to be at Adelaide Registry Office. Son Robin confirmed to me on text message on 26 Nov 2018, Adelaide Registry Office. also confirmed her name is Melva Ann Cornitha by providing his birth certificate with her full name on it. Robin advised by text that Bonny was a nick name all on text message dated 2 Dec2018.
    • This marriage year is a correct guesstimate because it is written on son Robin Lindsay Clarke birth certificate.

      Telephone call to Pauline who lived amoung these people gave me details, some where notes in private until further evidence.
      This circa (about) 1946 is because Harold was discharged Nov 1945 and first child born 1947. She remembers Harold (her brother) arriving (no date recall) with Melba (Bonney) announcing "theyre married!" Harry's style apparently back in those early days.
