    Hello, not sure if you an help …….my dad, Bruce Reginald Kidson was badly burnt in the war and joined the Guinea Club. I was not with my father from about age 5 or 6 and wondered who I could contact to get information about him, and actually wonder if he was the secretary spoken about who had badly burned hands /fingers as he did I understand.
