Dear Stuart, I received the following this afternoon from Mark. He's given me his sister's phone number. Yes, his father was the head of ABC Singapore. We used to hear his reports on Sundays on This Week in Asia. I think that's what it was called. It came on after the 12.30pm radio news and each country's head journalist gave a report.

I wonder if Joshua's father is the well-known army Peter Cosgrove. Now up to 1586. Regards, Jan
