Need information on a Mr. Daniel associated in some way with Queens College, Guyana. Mr. Daniel married Sarah Amelia "May" Bamford, my 2d cousin, and went to Malaya in 1941(?) for a headmaster posting to a similar school. May's mother Flora Benson, is my great aunt and my mother's namesake. May and her husband were interned by the Japanese; May died within days following liberation. They had three children, John, Elisabeth, and Ann, who married an American GI (perhaps) and moved to California. The lived on a farm near Washington, Sussex, UK. I would like to find them or their descendants. I have below the info from the UK Casualty Records, Thanks, Alan Bollers.
