I came across your family site and my wife is a great niece of Clara through her husband who was William Whitson Jones. The families were in touch until after the war and there are letters still in being. I have photos of both Clara and William as very dashing young people.

Hi Roger

Just had one of those moments when I couldn’t find my disc with all my wife’s family photos on!!! Panic over and disc copied!!

The photo of William Whitson is taken in Bulawayo. As you can see they look a couple of young go getters.

The photo you have is probably of Clara and her son - John William Jones.

I have more information on the family which I can send. My wife has a few Paddison relations. One stayed in the Neath area and another emigrated to Australia. They are a well known local family. I have a photo somewhere of the Corn Stores belonging to Clara’s father in London and will try and dig it out.

I believe Clara’s family has now died out as you can see from the attached chart (if correct).

I’d be interested to see what you have on Clara.

Best wishes from Wales
