DO YOU KNOW CHICO GUADALUPE? I am looking for ‘Chico’ Guadalupe who was in the TAD Derry Base between 1964 and 1967. It is believed he would have been in his late teens/early twenties in 1965. Chico was originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico. He was an officer, sailor or technician at US Navcommsta Londonderry between 1964 and 1967. It is believed that he owned a hotel in San Juan. He was friends with a man called Sydney Bradley who has passed away. Sydney worked at a confectionary newsagent shop on Great James Street, Derry. In the mid-1960s his mother, aunt, sister and an interpreter visited Derry for a short holiday. I am hoping to find out Chico’s first name (‘Chico’ may have been his nickname), a more accurate age for Chico and at what office he worked on the Londonderry base when on TAD. Do you know or have any more information about Chico or any of his family? A family friend is trying to get in touch.
