I am feeling so sad as my dear friends Charles and Muriel Rathford have both died this year one in January and the other a couple of weeks ago.
If you read this Pelley, I know you will have known them ,as would some of the others who have come to this site.

Thankyou Len,they were friends for 54 years and we had lots of times together,my boys are quite sad about them too.Even when we came back to NZ in 1973 we have kept in touch and I returned to Australia and stayed with them for a few days .We spoke lots by phone and I miss Mue especially. Charles started off as a cook in CHL ,then a manager,and then in the 1980's a field officer, then out of CHL in the 1980's .He was from Europe,his name is Anglisized. We always called him by his European name, Karel. Mue was Australian.
So thankyou again Len.
