World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


The Royal Newfoundland Regiment was formed in 1939 from volunteer forces in Newfoundland.

My Uncle, George Howell from Green's Harbour, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland was in the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, Heavy Artillary during WW2. While in Kent, he met a woman in the British Auxilliary Territorial Service named Betty Eastman or Easton. She was from Newtown, North Wales, her father was a Railway Station Agent. She gave birth to a son shortly after my Uncle George was sent to Naples to fight. He was shipped home after the war and never got to see his son, Anthony. I believe that Anthony was born in 1943/44. Any info will be greatly appreciated. We, the Newfoundland family of Anthony want to meet him and his family. Uncle George passed away in 1997.
