Cousin Harry GREGORY b 1923 gave me the four names of Alan, Eric, Winifred and Stanley. Found the death notice. Phoned daughter Ann who gave me the date of birth. Found entry in WW2 for Alan Wickham BALDWIN - same birthday but with 1 Jan 1925 on one entry and 2 Jan 1925 on another entry. Read digital entry and there's an interesting page about his name. Go to http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/ResearcherScreen.asp and in reference number insert 138633 (See page 30) The digital images I requested on online.

NMH 30 Nov 1994 Baldwin - Relatives and friends of Nell Baldwin, Christopher and Margaret Baldwin and family, John Baldwin (dec) David and Kerry Baldwin and family, Ann Baldwin and Col Moore and the Baldwin and Keogh familes are advised that the funeral of their dearly loved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother and uncle Alan Baldwin of 217 Gosford Rd Adamstown was held privately on 29 Nov 1994

This has to be the same person but daughter, Ann made no mention of the first marriage. (No death of Norma by 1952.) I wonder if he hung out around Wickham so took the name?? Many gaps in this line.
