Maybe a Grant
« on: Sunday 11 June 17 07:39 BST (UK) »
At the moment I have no name for this man. We believe he's family, possibly a Grant. Whether he came to NZ or stayed in Scotland is a mystery so if someone can help me date this photo or even hazard a guess on the uniform I would be grateful.
Thanks

These people are Grants.. my GG Grandparents James Pirie and Barbara Jane (n. Christie) and their sons {L-R} George Shepherd, James (G Grandfather),  and William Christie Grant. So I'm not sure if the man in the army uniform is a Grant after all as dates dont add. George is named on NZ War Ballot lists but I cannot find a service record. So the hunt continues.. the family came to NZ in 1921 when George was 6 but he doesn't look that in this photo, so maybe 2/3 years after 1921.

A bit more digging and I think I found my man in the uniform.. Ernest Wood Christie brother to Barbara Grant (n. Christie) He died in France during WW1, while serving with the 48th Highlanders of the Canadian Army.
