One case in particular springs to mind. It was so bizarre we questioned whether or not we should take it on.
Started in the UK-to India-to Australia and other locations en-route.
We did advise the client from day one, there was a 95% chance of failure. John would often be working on this case sometimes up until 4 am. Commercial madness or what?
Problem # 0ne! None of the parties had actually seen each other since 1955! Which is where as children they were all living in Calcutta.
Our client now in his 80s was born and lives in the UK. But spent much of his childhood in India.
His initial commission instruction sent us on a search taking in-India-UK-Perth – Western Australia.
Nerve jangling for our client’s nerves!
This was a case so challenging even the client himself implored us to give-up. Here is the story Luckily, John ignored his instructions.
When you are done there is more!
Here is another case which we are currently involved in. A teenage romance: click here featuring the delightful Maria from Sweden and our client John from the UK. Two young loves back in 1962. Last seen each other on a beach in Eastbourne, cca.1962.
‘By hook or by crook’ we are going to find Maria.
Here is “our Maria” as we describe her! We have become quite attached to her!

If only there existed a parallel universe, somewhere we could go and repeat it all over again. That’s how much I enjoyed it. It was so good I wouldn’t swap those incredible times even in exchange for regaining my youth.
Now approaching my autumn years
Although now approaching the “tail end” years I don’t envy the young. On the contrary, I can say categorically I do not like ‘today’ very much at all.
Now in my mid-70s, I am proud to have been part of those unforgettable 1960s. Oh, to go back!
