I bought an old cupboard in a second hand store in Clanwilliam. After about a year and half I found an old letter behind the mirror in the cupboard.
It was written to a Fred W Bell in 1940. Address being no 6 McDonald Mansions Irwinton Road Sea Point. The sender was his brother Len H Bell doing his army training at 35 MFF Works APO Durban.
There is also mention of a Marion and the Murray's.
If there is anyone out there related to the Bells or know of them (if they are still alive) and would like this letter as a keepsake please let me know.
I would obviously like proof of relationship.
