Hi my Wife Karen was born in Lahai-Roi August 1956. We have been looking online to find any details of her Mother Father or potential siblings.
The only information we have is from Karen's Birth certificate:- Mother Shirley Carr (middle initial may be A?) from Waterlooville Hampshire, may have been a copy typist aged about 19.
Looking at post on this sight it looks as if ladies spent some time prior to birth here. So if anyone remembers Shirley during the summer of 1956, or has any records for this time we would be grateful for any information.

regards John & Karen
