William Smiles Oliver born April 1934

Post by jeff » Tue Sep 08, 2009 6:13 pm

My first introduction to the North East came nearly years ago at RAF Eastleigh,Nairobi, in the person of William Smiles Oliver.
LAC RAF Number 4083749. He used to take me into town to the NAAFI club on a Saturday morning.
He came from Ashington (I know this is not really in the Shields locality, but it's near enough) and lived at 49 Ariel Street. His dad was a miner and Billy worked I believe for the Co-op. I have not heard of or from him since we left Eastleigh in 1953.
Long shot , this one , but does anyone have any contact? My brother and I have at different times tried to make contact but to no avail.
There's nothing wrong with being mediocre........as long as you're good at it!
