Portsmouth & Southsea railway station by Andy Cooper

LETTER OF THE DAY: Please tart up our railway stations

Have your say

Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with

Harbridge: I am trying to trace a long lost family member from the Portsmouth area.

I was adopted in the 60s and spent most of my youth imagining being the child of a young unmarried mother who was given up for this reason.

Much later in my life as I began to trace my birth family I have discovered that I have older sisters. I have traced one branch of the family in Canada and I have also discovered there is another half sister who stayed in England with her dad in the Portsmouth area.

It is this person who I am hoping you maybe able to help me trace.

Her maiden name was Lesley Harbridge and I believe she married and became Lesley Wilkinson.

MCKINLEY: I’m looking for dad Ronald McKinley. I believe he’s been living in the Portsmouth area since 2001.

SAIT: Looking for my lost friend Roy from my National Service days 1948 – 1950.

He lived in Elson, Gosport and was in RAOC stationed at Bramley C.A.D near Reading. Last contact in 1968-69 when I visited his home in Elson.

He was married in the 1950-55 period to Margaret and at the time of my visit they had two daughters. If Roy is around today he will be approx 81 years old. I’d be grateful for any news.
