Hi Chris,  The photographs and plans of the two hospitals set off on their journey yesterday - please let me know if you receive them;  if they fail to arrive this time I might just go out and purchase a couple of pigeons!  Take care, Gladys

Kind regards,

Dear Gladys,

Thank you so much for the photocopies of St John's VAD hospital Southport. They arrived safely this afternoon. I am grateful to you.

Would you mind sending me the name of the author and the title of the book about the hospital which you mentioned has been written by someone at your local library? It may be that I can obtain a copy though inter-library loan or one of our local family history societies.

Kind regards,
Chris Whittall

Hello Chris,
The book is one of a series called Southport at War and they cover the war years (one book per year of both First and Second World Wars);  they are very large and I asked about inter-library loan and got a non-committal answer;  it is not a 'published' book as such but one put together by Andrew Farthing and Matthew Tinker (ex-Local History Librarians) some years ago using photocopies take from the Southport Visiter and, as far as I know, there are only a few copies available for use in reference libraries in and around Sefton.
There is no publisher listed in the book and it does not have an ISBN number.   It is not possible to purchase copies but I can do more look-ups for you but would need to arrange a payment if you want more work doing.   One way to cover it would be for you to join the North Meols (Southport) Family History Society and as a member you would then be eligible for some free research?
Take care, Gladys

Dear Gladys,

I am grateful to you for your reply and for your suggestion. Interestingly I've had previous correspondence with Matthew Tinker and he was very helpful. I'll pursue the idea of joining the Society.

Many thanks again

Chris

Chris,  Sorry to say that Matthew Tinker passed away about 18 months ago - a sad loss to local history and to his many friends.

Dear Gladys,

Thanks for letting me know. I'm shocked, although of course I only knew Matthew through our correspondence. He was so helpful.

Chris
