    Nail on the head, TD. Hill married Betty May Mancini at Wandsworth on 7 December 1941 (something else happened that day).

    Harvey's parents were John Harvey Hill (born Shedden, Ontario) and Eunice Horatia, nee Hillman, Hill (born UK, town is spelled "Budley" but is either Bewdley or Budleigh) of Nipawin, Saskatchewan. Both were alive at the time of Hill's death. The "Vancouver" comes from where Mrs Hill was living in the early 50s, not where the casualty was from.

    He had two sisters, Irene and Patricia. Patricia is shown as 15; Irene has no age given but a note has been inserted by Betty Hill saying "recently married, married name unknown"

    Betty Hill would go on to marry a Captain SR Hession and by 1952 was living in Oakville, Ontario.


    Robert Bell Glover was born 1 December 1920 in Fort William (now Thunder Bay) Ontario to Edward Hardcastle Glover (born Derby, UK) and Rena May (nee Marsh) of Coldstream, Ontario (pop. 200). He married Catherine Marie Thompson at Fort William on 7 July 1941.

    He had four brothers. Twins Clive Edward Glover, Clive Edward : Post(s) and Floyd Marsh http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/chroniclejournal/obituary.aspx?n=floyd-marsh-glover&pid=173982268; Roy Hardcastle Glover, Roy Hardcastle | Fort Macleod Gazette and Donald Allan Glover, Donald Allan | Fort Macleod Gazette and one sister, Doris Rena Fulton View Doris Fulton's Obituary on chroniclejournal.com and share memories

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks a lot for your reply. I am in touch with relatives of Glover, so it would be interesting to have another go at Hill.
