HI Iain,
Well from what you said today and my research yesterday it would appear we have the same person, I found your dad's Birth cert John Burns McGuire 9th May 1914 7 Rannoch st Glasgow,I knew about the Scottish Ian /john names being born in Glasgow,(but grew up mostly overseas), Father James Clark M McGuire Colliery Clerk,Mother Bridget McGrath married 12 August 1903 Paisley, they moved to Cathcart which is indeed just up the road from Queens and area I am very familiar with,James was a Sgt in Scottish Rifles service no 36640,there are other records on Ancestry ,but I always search Scotlands People which is my Bible as I can view the original certs...
I found your parents marriage and there are other records for them also.
I am sure it must have been a bit of a shock as it was for me after all this time for someone to reply to my original post,would you like my Email address to continue our research in a more private forum ?
Barbara :)

Hello Ian,Thank you for your reply,I would just like to confirm we have the correct Ian Burns McGuire,I have my Fathers Birth certificate dated 7/14/1939, with Father named as above Chartered accountants Clerk living at 533 Castlemilk road,Glasgow  he was not married to my Grandmother Isabella Sorbie Mcvey,also on my parents wedding cert father named Ian Burns McGuire,no further information except we heard he had gone to Australia,my Father was not aware of his true fathers identity until he got married then his mother told him but no further information.if you are happy its the same person please get in touch again,any information would be a help and also there is a strange coincidence if we are related :)...Many thanks Regards Barbara
