    Hi Tony,

    Not sure if you have or want these. I had Ashley Dora (Listed as P Ashley in error on the plaque) as Australian doing my AFC/RFC/RNAS/RAF research for WW1.

    I do not have any other info on those other two ladies on the plaque as the info highlighted in red is from the Australian War Memorial site.

    Frev Ford from GWF provided me with family history of this woman. The family came from Staffordshire and all of Dora's siblings were born in the UK. Her parents emigrated sometime between 1909 (youngest sibling's birth in the UK) and 1918 (Edward and Fanny Ashley domiciled in Victoria, Australia). It is not known if Dora went with them but it seems likely as all of her siblings died there.
    Cheers

    I am most grateful.

    Sorry for the delay with my acknowledgement but I have major problems with my computer at the moment and the expert that I have engaged appears to be not the wiz-kid that he professes.
