George William SYMES 1896-1980
George Symes was born in Dorset. He joined the army during World War 1 and stayed on to make it a career. Later in life he moved to South Australia and died in Adelaide.
George's second wife was my grandmother Kathleen Cudmore, the widow of Geoff de Crespigny.
George's biography is included in the Australian Dictionary of Biography at http://www.adb.online.anu.edu.au/biogs/A160428b.htm
I would be pleased to hear from any researchers of the Symes family.
