    I am seeking some information about my father Vincent Driscoll who was employed at the BHP as a steel roller in the 1940?s and perhaps during the 1930?s. He was born in Grose Vale near Richmond, N.S.W.1895 and died at Newcastle in May 1944, 17 days after my birth. Vincent is buried at Sandgate cemetery. He enlisted for the First World War in 1915 and served in the Middle East and France (on the Western Front) and was awarded the Military Medal for his bravery at Hermies in France. In 2001 the Department of Veteran Affairs erected an official military headstone on his grave at my request. I would be most appreciative of any information about Vincent?s employment at the BHP and from any person who may have known of him. I realize that it is now over 62 years since his death but am always hopeful of finding further information about this man who was my father.
    Yours faithfully, Kerrie Ninni
