Memories of Beacon Hill

James Christopher Poyle

While undertaking Family Research, during 2011, I discovered that James Christopher Poyle, previously unknown to us as a member of my wife's extended family, passed away at Marchants Hill Camp, on 9th April 1955. I would apprecate hearing from anyone who might have known anything about James and/or his life while he was a resident there. Many thanks in anticipation of a reply!
