    Thanks for the information.
    I have had a chance tto look throught a few of the files on line, and my Grandfather Ned lyons (Edward) gets a mention in one or two,

    i am trying to put together an overall picture with as much detail and as many insights as i can.

    The Cappuchin annual 1966 might also be worth checking out if you can get hold of one,
