- I have just found your site. I am tracing my half-brothers family who spent a lot of earlier years in Gosport. I am writing his history for his upcoming big 60!. His father was Robert Frank Smith who lived in Avenue Road, and Queens Road and when he was in service in the Royal Marines his good friend was Bill Goddin/Godden. I remember Bill and his wife Lily and feel sure that they too lived in one of the roads mentioned above. Bill & Lily if still alive would be in their 90's. Do any of their family still live in Gosport, as I would love to hear about Bill's time in the marines along with my step-father. Gloria Lumley (Added 6th August 2006)
