Mail Bag! Finding Flynn in Tasmania!

28 Jan

From the Mail Bag!

Hi David,
Hope your well? I wrote to you some time ago and you kindly replied. I’m Errol Flynn’s second cousin living in Sydney. I was recently in Oatlands Tasmania and went into the TKO bakery for a curried scallop pie and discovered it was full of Errol Flynn memorabilia. Thought you might like to advise blog members in case they come down under.Regards,
Steve Russell

Thanks, Steve!

    Thanks mate for granting us a glimpse at Errol`s Coffee & Dreams. Another sight to see when in Tasmania is Mount Wellington with a wide view on Hobart down below. One day, my friend…

    Hi Steve Russell,

    I’m an Errol Flynn fan, and researcher, from Sydney. You mentioned in your comment here that Errol Flynn was your second cousin. I’m especially interested in piecing together his early life in Sydney, and family connections, and I’m wondering if you’d be interested in getting in touch. I’d like to know where you fit in to the family, and any family information you have – no matter how small. It all helps!
