Bob and Dick Winn

Had a very welcome call today from a relative of the two WINN's I have on my list, Hector (called Bob) and Richard (called Dick). From the well-known Blackwood-Coromandel Valley WINN family that ran the bakehouse that still stands on Winns Road, and is used as a museum.

Fantastic information about Hector's diary (with the piece of shrapnel that smashed his arm still embedded in it) and that that both of them have children still living who can tell me more about them. Plus hopefully more photos. It's great to get a call like this one.

There is going to be an article in next month's Blackwood Times about the project which will hopefully generate even more interest and calls (and hits on this blog).
