thanks to 1daisy and her message of 9-2-2011:
... I do not know where you obtained your information for the familytreecircles, however it would appear you have two families mixed as there were two Frederick Christian Zantucks and their fathers were brothers.
One, (my uncle) I know went to New Zealand, I do not know if her was in the Armed forces. I do know the other FCZ was in the Forces. The siblings mentioned in the article refer to my family although there was a sibling missing - Eileen (married William Ray) dob born 8th March 1901 dod 11 June 1940. Another fact I do know and that is both FCZ's had siblings of the same name -
Another fact I know is that my uncle FCZ died prior to 1965 - not sure when but I do remember bringing my father home from hospital the day he died, and VLZ didnt die until 1965.
Another fact which is not correct is that Ida Minnie Grace born 22 May 1982 should be Ida Minnie May.
I realize that it may be confusing with cousins having the same names but the father of FCZ who was in the Forces was John Frederick born 7 June 1858 - dont know the mothers name.
My email is [email protected] and I would be interested to hear your comments ...
