JILL Forester of Bolton wants to find the family of Isodore (Ivor) Aaron, a comrade of her father who served in Palestine during the Second World War.
''My father Glyn Jones, who is in his 80s, was recently reminiscing about his wartime experiences in Palestine,'' Jill says.
''He was telling some funny stories about one of his Jewish friends and it occurred to me that, as his friend did not survive the war, his family probably never knew about this time in his life.''
Isodore, of Manchester, served with the Royal Horse Artillery in Palestine and the Western Desert. He died in Palestine in 1941 of wounds he received in action.
He had married just before he was posted to the Western Desert and his wife gave birth to a son in 1940, but Isodore didn't live to see him.c
