Hi Cousin Your post re Lt Foley is probably about Royden Foley, my father's cousin who was in the RAF and flew in England during WW1 and returned to his native Canada afterwards where he rejoined the RCAF.. What brings this up to date is the movie - Kings Speech. When King George VI visited Canada sometime in the 1930s, I think, he toured some of the biggest cities, and Royden was one of his aides. There exists a photo of Roy with the King who is pinning a medal on a local dignitary. Roy and Kathleen Owbridge Foley had a son named Paul who has also since died.
I have seen the photo - it is a high quality print - and I would love to have a copy. I'll be happy to follow this and hope something develops. I am
