  • Notes 
    • Harry Motyer WINTER moved to Cape Town, South Africa.
      He was a stone mason & also a diver ... one of the "Old Type" that went to the sea bottom with the large old round brass head gear fitted.  Can't say if it was part of his Stonemason duties to work underwater to build breadkwaters etc. or not, or what the reason may be.
