Billy O'Connor worked English music halls with an all card act. From what I've gathered, he was quite successful and very entertaining.
Ken Brooke, writing in his book "The Unique Years," praises O'Connor and mentions that O'Connor's son, Bob, "toured the Middle East during the war, with his dad's act." That's WW II.
My question to any English members of the Forum, does anyone know if O'Connor's son Bob is still alive and, if so, where to contact him?
