Pure Facial Feature fluke here. Thanks.
Now just how do I do this again?

Thanks sandman55. The ever ready nice way of folks on this forum is why I enjoy being on it. 

Should I offer clues etc with each post? I can be a bit obscure with my interests, and readings compared to the more film based, pop culture of my youth and so the library of folks I am building up in case I fluke an answer is quite bland at times.

Cheers - Ian

 Hi Ian I presume you are asking about how to post a larger pic. What you've done is OK because we can click on it to make it larger and some people who are camped out in the sticks with limited internet only post a small image like that but if you want to post a larger pic then you first after typing your text hit enter which will put your cursor under your text and your pic will end up there too rather than on the end of your text making a wide screen.

Then click attach files (as you did)

Then select your pic from your computer (as you did)

You will then see the blue line showing it uploading

When it has uploaded to post a larger image click "Insert"

Then click OK or what ever your system asks

It will then give you the larger image and you can click "Submit post"

If you would now like to make your image of this lady you have posted larger you can click "Edit post"

make sure you cursor is below the text then follow on from where I said "Click Insert" Cheers Sandy

Yes Siree sandman55 it is Vivian Bullwinkel - well done

 Below - an extract from a book descriptor re this incredible lady.

This book details the true story of Vivian Bullwinkel, a Nursing Sister in the Australian Army who, during World War Two, was the only survivor after a massacre led by the Japanese.

After the fall of Singapore to the Japanese in February 1942 many Australian Army Nurses and approximately 200 civilians were crammed onto a coastal steamer Vyner Brooke  to escape the bombing in Singapore.  The Japanese bombed the Vyner Brooke and it sank quickly.  Being overcrowded there were not enough lifeboats to cater for all the passengers and many drowned at sea.  Some of the survivors landed on a beach at Banka Island and were rounded up by the Japanese and imprisoned.  Other survivors drifted with the tide and reached the north coast of Banka Island Sister Vivian Bullwinkel was in this group. In a desperate situation and many wounded people, the group decided to surrender to the Japanese.  Those that were physically able trekked through the jungle to find the Japanese while the Nurses remained on the beach to care for the wounded.  

A patrol of Japanese soldiers arrived and gathered together about 50 male survivors and walked them down the beach and around a headland where they were shot.  The twenty-two Australian Nurses were then ordered by the Japanese to form a line along the beach and walk into the water.  When the nurses were about waist deep in water the Japanese shot them.  Sister Vivian Bullwinkel was only wounded and pretending she was dead waited some time before she scrambled back to the beach hoping that all the Japanese had gone.  Vivian was joined by an English soldier who survived the massacre behind the headland and after surviving in the jungle for about two weeks, near starvation,  they decided to surrender to the Japanese. The soldier died of his wounds.

Sister Vivian Bullwinkel was then in a Japanese Prisoner of War camp for three and a half years where she was reunited with some of the other Australian Army Nurses that landed directly on Banka Island. (Sister Vivian Bullwinkel, other nurses and personnel drifted north on the tide before landing). 

During the three and a half years the Nurses, who were non-combatant, were starved, tortured and were moved constantly from one camp to another.  (One of the Nurses in this POW camp was Sister Betty Jeffrey who wrote the book White Coolies)

On returning to Australia the Australian Army Nurses were ordered  by the government, before the war crimes tribunal, to make no mention of the violation and rape committed by the Japanese. 

Sister Vivian Bullwinkel, intended to tell all before her death but was held back because she was ordered when she was still in the Army not to include these details in her depositions to the Tokyo was crimes tribunal. This is something that troubled her deeply. Jan C

You've got him BG Paul Anka one of my favourite singers over to you for a pic.

Paul Albert Anka OC (born July 30, 1941) is a Canadian-American singer, songwriter and actor. Anka became famous with hit songs like "Diana", "Lonely Boy", "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", and "(You're) Having My Baby". He wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and one of Tom Jones's biggest hits, "She's a Lady". He also wrote the English lyrics to Claude François and Jacques Revaux's music for Frank Sinatra's signature song, "My Way", which has been recorded by many, including Elvis Presley.

In 1983, he co-wrote the song "I Never Heard" with Michael Jackson. It was retitled and released in 2009, under the title "This Is It".[1] An additional song that Jackson co-wrote with Anka from the 1983 session, "Love Never Felt So Good", was released in 2014 on Jackson's posthumous album Xscape. The song was also released by Johnny Mathis in 1984.

Early life

Anka was born in Ottawa, Canada, to Camelia (née Tannis) and Andrew Emile "Andy" Anka Sr. , who owned a restaurant called the Locanda.[2] His parents were both of Lebanese Christian descent.[3][4] His grandfather came to America from Bab Tuma, Syria, and his mother was an immigrant from Lebanon.[5][6] His mother died when he was 18.[citation needed]

Anka sang with the St. Elias Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral choir under the direction of Frederick Karam, with whom he studied music theory. He studied piano with Winnifred Rees. He attended Fisher Park High School, where he was part of a vocal trio called the Bobby Soxers.

Early success

Paul Anka at Gröna Lund in Stockholm, 1959

Paul Anka recorded his first single, "I Confess", when he was 14. In 1956, with $100 given to him by his uncle, he went to New York City where he auditioned for Don Costa at ABC, singing what was widely believed to be a lovestruck verse he had written to a former babysitter. In an interview with NPR's Terry Gross in 2005, he stated that it was to a girl at his church whom he hardly knew.[9] The song "Diana" brought Anka stardom as it went to No. 1 on the Canadian and US music charts.[10] "Diana" is one of the best selling singles ever by a Canadian recording artist.[11] He followed up with four songs that made it into the Top 20 in 1958,[12] including "It's Time to Cry", which hit No. 4 and "(All Of a Sudden) My Heart Sings", which reached No. 15, making him (at 17) one of the biggest teen idols of the time. He toured Britain, then Australia with Buddy Holly. Anka also wrote "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" a song written for Holly, which Holly recorded just before he died in 1959. Anka stated shortly afterward:
