LETTER: China Convoy’s leading light

I am writing to ask your readers to help me trace the family or descendants of William F. Jordan whose address in 1954 was 23 Arlington Road, Eastbourne. I have just published a book called ‘A True Friend to China’ about the medical aid work done by the Friends Ambulance Unit in China in the 1940s. Bill Jordan was a leading light in the FAU ‘China Convoy’ and I would love to be able to contact his family and to tell them about the book. I can be reached on arhicks56@hotmail.com
