My name is Richard Howell and Michael was my identical twin brother. We were born at home in England at 66 Weymouth Road Hayes Middlesex at home on the 29th November 1940.
We were premature babies born at 28 weeks. I was born at 7.30 pm and Michael was born at 7.40 pm, I was 1.4kg born and Michael was 1.2kg.
born: Because we were born during the second world war and was looked after by a Nurse Rumble at home because there was no hospital accommodation available and no such thing a humidi crib’s at all.
Michael was employed in England by EMI ( HMV) Company in Hayes, Michael was a maintenance fitter able to strip down and repair various types of factory equipment. I think he migrated to Australia in January 1966. He worked at the AWA company as a maintenance fitter. Michael then joined the NSW police force… He always wanted to join the police force, he tried to join the London police force but was knocked back; the reason was they said his education was not good enough.
Well I must say cheerio, I thank you for putting a tribute to Michael.
