Re: WW2 naval records

Thank you, Meg. I have used that before to get my father’s records but wasnt sure if I could get uncle’s as I’m not his next of kin. I know one of his daughters is dead, but no idea about my other cousins as we aren’t in touch. I will contact them though to find out.

She had six children who all died in infancy or early childhood. I have contacted Dundee archives to try to e...

Missing death record?

My grandads sister died in Dundee District Asylum in 1937. She had one daughter, born in 1907, and was recorded as a widow on her death certificate.

Re: Gaelic speaking

Thank you. It was always my understanding that Gaelic was only exclusively spoken in certain areas, eg the western isles. I was surprised to see it mentioned£ about someone from Invergordon. The information my friend has is word of mouth so not necessarily accurate.

Gaelic speaking

Hope someone will know the answer. I’m helping an acquaintance to try to trace her great grandmother’s family. The info she has given me is that her great grandmother left Invergordon sometime around 1870 aged about 18, and went to York to live, speaking only Gaelic.Would that be accurate, that she ...

Re: Mystery badge

Oh, interesting. Dispatch rider? I decided to bid on it as was interested and husband and myself both collect old military memorabilia and medals. The cigarette case with it was interesting too. There was also a little badge in the box with it that hadn't been shown in the lot. That was marked Royal...
