I never knew my grandfather, nor did my mother.
His name was Albert Duncan Reid. We thought he was born in 1907 but perhaps he was born in 1909. He was born in Carlton.
I know he married Gwendoline in the late 1930's. My mother still has the very few photos she has of her father and she knows in her heart that he did come looking for her.
I long to give my mum some information about her dad, the person he was, was he loving and nuturing, did he ever tell anyone of her existance?
I would have loved to have known my grandad and it would be great to hear from anyone that may have known him.
