Hal (Herman) Woolf

Duncan Tyler is trying to gather information on a former member of the Royal Engineers called Hal (Herman) Woolf.

Hal was born in the east end of London in 1902 and studied at several art colleges; he made a career as an artist in the 1920s and 30s.

When the second world war broke out he was conscripted into the Royal Engineers and fought as part of a camouflage unit in Egypt. He may not have had an exemplary army record and he may have acquired a small reputation as a rebel.  He was to die in 1963.

Duncan would like to make contact with any of his old comrades so that they can share their memories of him.
