Lanarkshire / Re-Registration of Birth 14 Years Later
« on: Sunday 13 March 22 10:57 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone advise me as to why a child born in Anderston district of Glasgow in 1921 should have an annotation on the certificate stating " Re-Registered in the district of Kelvingrove 5th April 1935".
Personally I haven't come across this before.
many thanks,

World War Two / 7th Seaforths on 15th February 1945
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 09:35 BST (UK)  »
Hello folks, can anyone provide me with information on the action involving 7th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders on 15th February 1945?  I have found a grave concentration form on the CWGC site stating that a number of men and Major D.L. Henderson were originally buried in Badburg, Germany but subsequently reinterred in the Riechswald Forest British War Cemetery 21st October 1946.
However I can find no record of  Major Hendersons' grave  there.
Any information would be appreciated on this matter,

World War Two / Presentation of Military Cross from Field Marshal Montgomerie
« on: Monday 17 August 20 11:58 BST (UK)  »
A friends father, Major Donald Macintyre was presented with his Military Cross on 7th September 1944 by Field Marshall Montgomerie . At the time of the action for which he was awarded the medal he was with the 5th. South Staffordshire Regiment. At the time of his presentation he was awaiting his transfer to the 2nd Seaforth Highlanders which occurred one week later on the 14th September.
Where should I look for any photograph of the presentation?
I have found that 'Monty' was in Brussels that day en route to his HQ.
Any advice or information gratefull received and will be passed on to his son.
Major Macintyre was subsequently seriously wounded in February 1945 near Goch and repatriated to the UK.
We believe that all recipients were photographed being presented with their award and his son would dearly love to get a copy.
Many thanks
