Thanks Phillipa

Have heard of Charley WIGHTMAN/DENNISON - he is the daughter of Eva
WIGHTMAN/Charlie DENNISON (Eva was my Great Grandmother's Sister).

Haven't heard of Bob Noble - but there is also a NOBLE line in North
Queensland (Cairns/Yarrabah).

Cheers,

Des.

There was an Aboriginal Charlie Wightman and a Cecil Wightman at
Boggabilla in 1906 and 1940s respectively.

Do you know Bob Noble ? he is Policy Officer for Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander veterans at the Dept of Veterans Affiairs .
Googling him gives contact details . I have heard he is from Queensland
