Many Thanks Rory
I haven’t seen this particular document before and I have to say it’s got me all confused. I was under the impression that Westerman had died in S.A. but a check on freebmd seems to confirm the death in Bromsgrove. Can you telll me anymore about the document as it is from the S.A. Bank and stamped Capetown?. I’ve not come across any previous reference to Bromsgrove with him before.
