    Notes 
    • [PRIVATE] Anne van Gestel believes she is a daughter of Gus, born shortly after his marriage to Jacq. She was adopted and only recently discovered this. She was born Beverley Margaret Fechner. Gus apparently tried to visit her mother in a single mothers home but was not allowed to see her. Her mother (Mabel Grace Fechner) never married. At this stage, the only evidence for Gus's paternity is the mother's statement. She says he was at M&G Group [not identifiable at this stage], Docks Section, Brisbane when she knew him. She remembers that he had a brother Tom (yet Maurie was with Gus in Brisbane as part of 2/5 Armd Regt). [5]
