Hi my name is Sandy Warman-Johnston.  I am searching for two Aunts who it is believed came to Australia in 1947 after independence.  I am told that they came with their father David Hall.  The confusing part is that sometimes they used the name Warman-Johnston, and at other times just JOHNSTON.  As far as I know David Hall left his wife Margaret nee Reynolds after over 25 years of marriage and twelve children, and took the two youngest, these two girls with him, and went to live in Bombay from Calcutta.  I think the two girls names were Irene who was born about 1922 and Rhoda born about 1923.  There is another Aunt Jean, who no one knows what happened to.  She married Walter Marshall and had two children named either Sylvia or Cynthia and Peter.  They did come to England after independence but disappeared and the family think they may have gone to Australia on the assisted passage scheme.  So if anyone can help with information or guidance please contact me by e-mail
