'I got a golden ticket'
« on: Thursday 20 September 18 21:01 BST (UK) »
well thats a little fib...

BUT what I have got after

10 years or more of searching is a pic of my G.G, grandad

it is a lovely pic - havent scanned it yet - not back home.

It shows four Generations of my wonderful Scottish crew.

Son who is the brother of my Grandfather, with their Father and his Father.

will show you sooon.

guess who really thinks its worth more than that 'golden ticket'

As I say - I had imagined it to be an impossible dream...

found through the discovery of a very special cousin.

So search your Cousins, cousins   -- ha ha 

you never know..

best I can do for now..
