Can you help?

First the back story…Thomas Till, born 1883,  was a farmer at Whichers Gate who emigrated to Australia – below are the family’s names on the passenger list of the Bendigo which sailed to Melbourne on 5th June 1926.

 Madge Till was nine when she left Havant. She married in Australia and died in 1950.  Her family continued to correspond with neighbours in Havant, and among Madge’s effects was the wedding photograph right which looks as if it might be from the 1940s. Madge’s son Pete Marshall in Australia has no clue – no name or date – just the fact that the photograph was probably  taken somewhere locally.

Pete would be delighted to hear from anyone who can give him any information about the photograph, and maybe about any letters Madge may have written in return. His email address is brspcagain@gmail.com, and your local contact is pennymunday@btinternet.com
