HUGHES: I am writing in the hope of making contact with someone and hope readers may be able to help!

I am trying to trace someone who a friend has lost contact with and we are trying to arrange a reunion.

His name is William ‘Lofty’ Hughes and he served with the Royal Navy at HMS Nelson in Portsmouth during the late 1950s and we think he was probably in his late 20s or early 30’ at that time. Unfortunately, we have very little info to go on, but think that he may have been in a relationship with a girl called Marion Tee.

If anyone recognises this person from such scant detail, I would dearly love to hear from you – or even Lofty himself if he still lives in the area.

ALLEN: I am desperate to locate my son Kevin Robin Allen. He is in his late 50s.

He used to live in Havant but moved to the Portsmouth area about five years ago and was employed by Land Registry for several years.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
