    Credenhill is the site of RAF Hereford which is the home base of 22 Para, aka the SAS. There are a number of SAS graves in Credenhill churchyard, so I wonder if he could have been visiting the grave of a former comrade.

    Ok... Maybe this guy from NY?

    I'm looking for those who are missing in the last year in America, but most of them in that age range are already bald, or seriously balding, which rules them out to me. This guy seems similar. Definitely not named Roger. Suffering from dementia.

    Interestingly I had read a comment somewhere that apparantly a man thought he recognised him as someone he worked with in the raf. No idea where I saw this now so cant follow it up

    From the link,
    306A66C400000578-3410033-image-m-22_1453379215787.jpg

    They also believe Roger Curry is not his real name and is actually a friend of the pensioner who has since died.

    His accent sounds (to me) like it's from southern/central Virginia, coastal MD, VA, or North Carolina. West Virginia, western Maryland, and maybe eastern Kentucky are other possibilities but IMHO less likely. He sounds very older generation Virginian (like some elders in my family). FWIW.

    Then again I could be totally off. :blushing: :oops:

    I HOPE someone comes forward soon who cares about him. Poor guy!

    By the way, upon searching Roger Curry I came across this site (pbase) of photo galleries taken by a Roger Curry. They mostly consist pictures of coastal and water areas in and around Ireland taken from his boat. He seems to be really into sailing/boating ... Perhaps he came across this man on one of his journeys? Or was he on a trip with him and then he then he went downhill, mentally, so dropped him off when he was in Herefordshire? There's a handful of various men in his photos, and in one or two photos there's a man that looks quite similar to our "uknown gentleman", at least to me.

    This is all speculation and could be absolutely nothing and unrelated in the least, but I just thought it was a little interesting.

    Here's the link: http://www.pbase.com/rogercurry/

    Mooo.

    Beautiful pictures, I dont see a likeness myself but ya never know.

    Re dotr's post above, I wouldnt put much into the left handed thing. Im right handed, but use my left hand for nearly everything but writing.

    I found man from Illinois called Roger Curry who passed away just last year. Maybe this poor man was friends with him.

    Credenhill seems such a strange place to abandon someone though. In recent years UK papers have carried a number of "granny-dumping" stories of elderly Americans being abandoned by their families, but from what I recall this has happened in warm, sheltered and high traffic places such as shopping malls and transport hubs. Places where the relatives can position a wheelchair and walk away, safe in the knowledge that the old person will be warm and dry and it won't be too long before they're noticed. A country lane in November is a very different kettle of fish. Then again, anywhere like a shopping centre or transport hub in the UK will be riddled with CCTV.

    I'd be very surprised if they don't identify him eventually though.

    Why do elderly Americans get abandoned here? I'm not understanding. Why would somebody do that? Wouldn't the OAP just tell the police what had happened? Am I being thick?!
