I AM trying to find a old mate of mine. His name is Thomas Baten, and he used to live in Victoria Road, Uxbridge.

I grew up with him and haven't seen or heard of him in years.

I came to Austalia in 1972 and came back to the UK and visited him back in 1977.

I tried again, in 1997 when I visited the UK for the second time, but time was short so I didn't get a response.

I was told by a friend that a man spoke about me in a shop in West Drayton - that was a year ago.

I don't know if you can help but thought I might give it a try.

My old address was 8, Victoria Road, Uxbridge.

To give you my background, I live on an island off the coast of Brisbane, and work in the deserts of central Australia in the oil game.
