Another Clue in the Hunt for Robin William George Stephens
|Joan Geraldine Pearson Dowling &|
Robin William George Stephens
(from Camp 020 - Oliver Hoare)
It would appear that Joan Geraldine Pearson Dowling may not have married Robin Stephens, but simply undergone a legal surname change in 1942. This would explain why I have been unable to trace a marriage registration for Joan and Robin.
