"Tommy Andrew was my best mate in
Oranjemund; he was like a father figure to me over there. A gentleman
and a scholar………….
One of the nicest blokes I have met on all my travels. He came
to stay with us in Preston , and I took him to Blackpool to visit
our old friend from Oranjemund…….. Marty Johnson.
I have tried for years to locate Tommy but to no avail……………….
I’d be grateful if anyone does know his whereabouts?

Tommy was scheduled to fly over
to Papua New Guinea for my wedding way back in 1984…………………… sadly
