ALAN CLIFTON Email
Looking for:  Anthony Ernest Thompson
I am a housing officer employed by Boston Mayflower Ltd. In December 2007 I had the unfortunate duty to evict one of my tenants due to him having moved away and abandoned the property he was in. I tried every avenue to contact him but to no avail. The name of this person was Mr Anthony Ernest Thompson, born 13.01.1955.
During the course of clearing the property I came accross a painting entitled 'Broadway, Burma, 5th - 6th March, 1944, The Chindits, 1st Battalion, The Kings Regiment, (Liverpool)' signed by David Rowland, print number 39 out of 150. Detailed on the back is "Presented to KGN Kevin Thompson from CSGT Joe McLoughlin". History:

  • 1964 - 1967 ACF
  • 1969 - 1973 - Acoy 4 Para (Lpool) LCPL + LT
  • 1974 - 1995 1 Kings
  • 1975 - 1976 - NI (Lderry)
  • 1976 - 1980 Colchester.
  • 1977 - Cyprus / Canada.
  • 1978 - Germany.
  • 1979 - NI (Bfast)
  • 1980 - Germany (Osnabruck)
  • 1982 NI (Bfast) / Canada.
  • 1983 - Canada.
  • 1984 - NI (Bfast)
  • 1985 - Chester / Kenya.
  • 1987 - NI (West Tyrone)
  • 1988 - Berlin.
  • 1990 - NI Jcuni (Special Forces)
  • 1991 - Instr Brecon (TAC Wing)
  • 1993 - Hounslow / NI (Armagh)
  • 1996 - Cyprus.
Best of luck Son - Joe Mac!
Basically I would think that this print has some monetary value but more sentimental value than anything. I suspect that Kevin Thompson may well be the son of our ex tenant, Anthony Thompson. I would like to be able to personally return it to him if he wants it and my request is, can you please check your records to try and trace him. If you can contact him and pass on to him my details as listed and tell him to contact, I will be more than happy to return this item to him.
