- Back during  WWII my father was stationed in England; he was with the North Nova  Scotia Highlanders from Canada. While there ,he had a girlfriend by the  name of Hester Cannings (her maiden name). My Dad passed away 4 years  ago, but he always kept her photos. My parents were happily married for 53  years, Dad always wondered  what ever became of her and if she had a good life. I told my father that  I would try to find any info on this woman if I could, but he passed away  without ever finding out. Do you think you could help me find answers? I found out that Hester had married and her name  now is  Hester V. Weyman and that she had once lived at 8 Park Close,  Gosport, and would  probably be about 76-79 years of age. Deborah M.
