Robert Dean Meldrum

My name is Jillian Kay Lawson (nee Meldrum). My father died in his early sixties in 1986.
He was a battler who worked at John Martins from the age of 15 until the age of 58. However he was always happy and the church overflowed at his funeral which showed what people thought of him.
He had musical talent and played the bugle in the Army. I am not sure what happened to that bugle, but he also played the mouth organ, and my grand-son Dylan has that now.
