Monday November 6th, 1944
PENDLEY – ROBERTS
On November 5th, at Connaught Nursing Home, to Joanne, (nee Roberts), wife of Captain A K Pendley, US Army, gift of a son, Christopher Scott.
Captain Pendley, it seems likely, married a Cardiff woman as their son was born eight miles or so from Barry.
Another Quartermaster Officer:
Thursday April 12th, 1945 – SWE
KARCANES – BUTLER
At Woodlands Road Nursing Home, April 10th, to Mavis and Major Karcanes, US Army, a son, Charles James, first great-grandson of Mr and Mrs F Butler, Lombard Street. (Barry)
According to the above records, one Captain James C. Karcanew worked @ G-40, as Deputy Quartermaster. So, was it Karcanes or Karcanew?
Mrs Denise Llewellyn who was a WREN during WW2 and was based in Cardiff Docks @ Mount Stuart Square wrote: “I do congratulate you on your initiative in researching all this material. I had often wondered how the girls who married GIs had fared…” Especially as for some it did not work out.
