Janet Young I suppose the "France" was where he died. Thank you for getting this posted. I don't know what he is wearing over his kilt. So many Scottish boys died in that horrible war. There stories do need to be told.

Janet Young Where is your family from? I have an Alexander McGregor in my family. The Mc is the key in my search. Ours came from Nova Scotia.

Janet Young Thanks for helping us to remember him. I think the term is received rather than won a Bronze and Silver Star.

Janet Young Being all together and enjoying each others company along with the food was a tribute to the women who prepared it. It was a way of spending time and connecting to our family and friends who were invited over. My dad in the 1960's insisted on eating his meal on a tray while he watched the news. My mom fussed about it for a while, but that was the way it was from then on except for special days. I wonder if that was the scenario in many other homes.

Janet Young He probably donned his wife's skirt (see the pleats) to be presentable for the photo instead of just appearing in the swimming suit.

Janet Young Would you try to rescan this photo to upload it a bit larger. It doesn't open enough to see the faces.

Janet Young There is some family resemblance to my dad, Richard Tonkin.

Janet Young There are so many MacDonalds from Nova Scotia that I haven't even bothered. I've tried to search some online for my McGregor cousins but no one else seems to be searching for that same line. I'm looking for an Isabella MacDonald who married Alex MacGregor in West Branch in 1843. Have you come across any trace of this Isabella MacDonald and her family? Thank you for this wonderful story.
