Thank you for your reply.
The only info I have specific for Rowland is that his wife Mona died on the tennis court at Blackburn. Rowland was born 21/04/1915 at Melbourne. His mother was Johanna Matilda Webster who married my Grandfathers brother Henry Charles Brighton in 1914 at Wentworth nsw. Johanna had a son Richard Graham when they were married and so was Rowlands half brother. Henry Charles Brighton was killed at Passchendale ww1 30/10/1917. His service number was 5054 and there is quite a bit of info about him in war records. He was born 1889 at Golgol which I believe was registered at Mildura.
I nursed with 2 Kemps at Bega Hospital NSW in the late 1960's. The younger one was Geoffrey and the elder was Ray. Any relation? If I remember rightly, Ray came from Wauchope.
Anyway, cheers from Lorraine
