Mr Little hasn't made contact with me todate.Hence the following 'corrections', even though belated:

(1) -In his Msge (Item #17), it is mentioned that Mrs Ethel Ohlmus was the wife of Mr M St E A Ohlmus. This is incorrect as he was a bachelor. Mrs Ethel Ohlmus was his mother and the WIFE of Dr Edward H Ohlmus, LRCP&S(Edin), LRCP&S(Glas). (Ref DBU Journal Vol.28-Pt.4-Pg.175).

(2) - it is also stated ( as on April 13, 1998) that Dr Edward Ohlmus was a famous old Colts cricketer and "who STILL takes a great interest in the game". Dr Ohlmus died in 1926.

My attempts to source the two documents ie The Ceylon Tea Book and the Blue Book of Ceylon 1924, from which Mr Little says he got his information, has been unsuccessful.
Can anyone help ? My e-address is: " "
