This is my dad's brother Philip.

My parents were the first to arrive at OM. They were followed to OM by Phil and Betty Bruce and then by my mother's brother and his wife, John and Doreen Wright.

My dad wishes he could have nurtured a moustache like Uncle Phil's. It was a beauty! Dad's was a trifling diminutive RAF handlebar job!

Just read my reply immediately above and it got me thinking that I do not recall knowing of any other families related to both the man and wife of the first family to settle in OM and remain there for x or xx years before moving on.

We had my dad's elder brother and my mother's younger brother and their respective wives.

Were there others? Would be interesting to learn if there were.
