Percival Thomas Priday

Hi,

I am trying to work backwards and was wondering if anyone had any further info.

My father's name was Robin Noel Priday and he was born in Caloundra, Qld on 23 December 1938 - one of about 7 I think. I remembered his father's name was Percival Priday who worked on a mine sweeper with the British Merchant Navy.

As chance would have it, a quick google search gave me some further info about my grandfather. His full name was Percival Thomas Priday and he was allegedly born on 1 January 1904.

He was in fact an Able Seaman and was with the HMS Artreus. During WWII he manned the Mine Control Huts (RAN2) at Fort Bribie, Qld.

I never really knew Dad's side of the family but am pretty sure my grandmother's name was Linda Johnson.

If anyone's got any info they can add to this, that'd be great.

Thanks.
