Hi Barbara,

This is fascinating! :D What relation does that make you to me?
My e mail is (*)
I've done very little research on any ancestry but may well take a closer look now.
I'm interested to find out about you and your life.
Send me an e mail so we can catch up.
Kind regards,

Hi Barbara,
As expected I was quite shocked to Google my dad's name in relation to looking for war medals and to find a post by yourself on Rootschat!
I'd need to do some research to determine if in fact we do have the same Ian Burns McGuire. My father never spoke much about his past except for childhood anecdotes. I know he grew up in Glasgow, not far from Queens Park. I'll check some info with my sister and see what we can come up with. He was born in Glasgow 09/05/1914 to his father James. He met my mother Edith Annie Downes in Blackpool around 1941 before going to India until the end of WW2. His father (James) was injured in WW1 via mustard gas. I'll check what info I can at mum's house which we're about to clean out as she passed away 18 months ago. He may have been born John McGuire.
