Source Notes

David Fisher quotes Suzanne Michaud for 10AM. Frank C. Clifford quotes Michaud for 10:30. Nick Campion quotes her for "no idea."

Sy Scholfield writes (October 2002), "Various years of birth have been given, birth name of Susannah Yolande Fletcher, and 9 January DOB. According to a Times birth announcement (11 January 1939, p. 1), a Miss Fletcher was born on 9th January 1939 in London: "FLETCHER. - On Jan. 9, 1939, at 18, Walpole Street, S.W.3, to Joan, wife of Peel Fletcher - a daughter" (Times, 11 January 1939, p. 1)."

The birth notice confirms the date, year and place. We have times of 10AM and 10:30AM so 10:15AM is in between.
