Man seeks family of WWII colonel from Oregon

To the Editor:

I write in the real hope one of your readers might help. I am trying to track down a Colonel and Mrs. Lucille Barber. He served in the U.S. Army in WWII in the UK. The last known address we have is Star Route Trail, Oregon.

We think he died in around 1973, Lucille lived on, and we think they had two sons.

It's a lovely story of kindness and not one I can convey in 300 words - basically involving my English Mum, then a little girl, and a wonderful offer he made to her parents.

Many thanks,

John Wilkes
