- can you help mgray with this query ??

I am looking into Green genealogy on behalf of a friend whose father was Wally (Wallace?) Wilmot Corneilus Green.

Wally Green was born circa 1917 and served with the airforce in the UK during WWII.

He was killed in a level crossing accident in the mid 1950s and lived at Wanganui for a time.

His son, (name supplied) knows very little about his history and is not online - hence my involvement.

His father's names certainly tie in with those on your website... is this coincidence or are they related?

Hoping you can help
