Very pleased and grateful to find such a clear and concise Event History of Commander John Read Bindon RN, who was a Great-Great-Grandfather of my late husband, Brian Leslie Vereker-Bindon. Grateful to see so many of our 'bits and pieces of information' we have gathered over many years for the Family Tree, on 1 sheet of paper. Sadly though, Brian is not here to see it. Thank you.
