    Notes 
    • John was named "Errol" after Errol Flynn (the actor) who had a coffee plantation near my mother's home at Rouna Falls (Papua). When we were in Townsville for the 2008 reunion, Ron Royes, who stayed with us around the time John died, told me that Mum confided in him that Errol Flynn had "courted" her, presumably prior to her marriage. What implications that might raise, give one's imagination a bit of exercise... Mum was always very interested in anything to do with Errol Flynn. [Neil Royes] [1]
