PostSubject: Looking for Captain Hamilton & daughter Susan Mary Hamilton   20/8/2018, 15:15

I am looking for a Captain Hamilton whom I believe to have served near Munster, probably at least from 1967 to 1974 and whose daughter Sue (Susan Mary) was a student colleague of mine at Bristol University between 1974 and 1978 studying German.

We are trying to organise a 40 year reunion of our study groupand are finding it extremely difficult to locate Sue, which is frustrating as we have located nearly everyone else.

Any information of any kind, no matter how trivial (for example even Captain Hamilton's Christian Name) would be of immense help.

Failing that, any pointers to where I might be able to locate such information would also be gratefully accepted.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and thank you in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Best Wishes,
David Foley

Apologies if I was not precise with the location I believe Captain Hamilton and his daughter to have lived/served in.

I did, of course, mean Muenster, Westfalen.

The only additional piece of information which might be helpful is that I believe Sue Hamilton to have attended the Edinburgh School, Muenster at some stage between 1967 and 1974.

Many thanks for reading and for any possible search suggestions you might be able to make.

David

Thank you for your reply - it is appreciated.

The mention of 'Whiteladies Road' brings back happy memories.

I note that you have served in Oswestry. That could be serendipitous.

I believe the Hamilton family to have been in Oswestry, with the person I am looking for having been born there in 1956.

I assume that her father - Captain {?} Hamilton was stationed there at the time before being posted to Germany, where Sue was at school (I believe as mentioned above at the Edinburgh School, Muenster) for at least some of the period 1967 - 1974, before beginning her studies in Bristol in Autumn 1974.

Again, many thanks - everey scrap of information helps.

Best Wishes,
David

Many many thanks:

London Gazette: 10th September 1973

Royal Regiment of Artillery

Regular Army:

22379963 W.O.I Gavin Hamilton(495981) to be Capt. (QM) 6th August 1973

This would appear to be the correct Captain Hamilton

In a supplement of 18th August 1981, he then becomes Maj. (QM) on 6th August

And then, in a supplement of 18th August 1986

Territorial Army
Group B
G. Hamilton (495981) (formerly Maj. (QM) Reg) and at his own request reverts to the rank of Capt. (N.R.P.S.) 19th May 1986

This is a very helpful start. Not quite sure where to go or what to do next but it's more than I had a couple of hours ago.

Many thanks for the recommendation of The London Gazette - I would never have stumbled across that at all.

Best Wishes,
David
