Over the years Tim Austin has been told stories from when a little boy growing up on lighthouses.

Many family travels are "documented" in photographs - some that you are able to see under the "Gallery" menu item.

As time goes by memories fade, people grow up and disperse across the globe, and people pass on.

Maatsuyker Island 1968 Andrew 5 And A Half Years Tim 3 Years

Sometimes browsing those photos passed down we see people and wonder who someone is. No one seems to have the answer.

Have you ever been in that situation ?

Well - this is where you might be able to help.

The photo shows Tim Austin (left), Tim's brother (center) and a girl (right)  sitting on a Land Rover on Maatsuker Island on the Tasmanian southern coast, Australia, in about 1968.

Do you know who the girl is ? Are you the girl ? Perhaps she is the daughter of another lighthouse keeper stationed on Maatsuyker island at the same time, or maybe a visitor to the island.

In 1968: Tim will have been aged 3 years old. The girl possibly 5 years old.

If you know the girl - possibly aged in her mid 50's in 2017 / 2018, or if you are who the girl would have been - please feel free to contact Tim Austin via our "Contact" form.

If you are able to help - please register on TimAustin.co.uk - when you login you will then have access to our Contact form in the site main menu.

It would be great to complete another piece in the puzzle.
