I am Pat, daughter of Cecil Prosper Liston of Liston and Co and Dorothy nee Hilton we left Penang in 1956. Three generations of us were born in Penang. Cecil, Prosper or Pop Pop as he was known by many people was a great racehorse owner and prolific winner.
For my seventieth birthday we returned to Penang to present one of the beautiful silver cups he had won with his racehorses to the Turf club museum.
My husband Jock Thomson was killed in the Emergency when working for Rahman Hydraulic and is buried in Western road cemetery along with my Grandmother Isabelle Liston, my great grandmother Edwina Findley and my great uncle Charles Findley....... I hope there are no plans for this cemetery being moved or sold off??
Anyone who knew us, who may be related to us, worked for us or a relative of theirs who may have a tale to tell however insignificant please contact me at the above email .... I would be thrilled to hear from you all.
Fingers crossed.... this was the best time of my life and apart from being evacuated to India in February '42 to Bombay and returning to Penang via Singapore in Dec '45 we stayed until my fathers retirement to the Uk in 1956.
I am particularily trying to find out what happened to Miss Foo, my father's secretary for many years and Doreen Muhkta? latterly working for AA Malaysia.
