looking for my father

Query by Caryl

Hello and Happy New Year to all members.

I am Caryl from France.
I am looking for my father.
His name is
Vincent GILLILAND born in 1918
and has a twin brother John Christopher GILLILAND

My uncle John Christopher GILLILAND married Kathleen ROBERTS on the 18 feb 1939 Register of Marriages in the Registration of Paddington.

Vincent moved to Australia between 1944 and 1950, (so I have been told) I don't know to which part of Australia, and know nothing else about him.

Living in France and having no opportunity to come to England in near futur, I would much appreciate a little help in finding more about him. (birth certificate?)

Thank you very much
