Family research nears end

I AM John Thomas Cameron, nephew of my uncle, Private John Thomas Cameron. I am 84 years old now and have been researching the family tree at my son Iain's behest.

Thank you for providing us with the photo and article about my uncle.  I have often thought of him and used to ask my mother about him when I was a child. She always said that he was a great guy.

Photo delighted 84 year-old

I wish to express my heartfelt thanks and deep appreciation to you for the story that you researched and wrote on Private John Thomas Cameron — "Rhu Man died in World War One attack" — published on your website. I have just in the last hour come across your story while generally browsing on the web.

I have just returned from handing a copy of your story to my 84 and half year old father, John Thomas Cameron, nephew of the Private, and it certainly brought happiness and joy to him to again see a photo of his uncle, a photo he last remembered seeing many many  years ago on the mantle piece in his grandparents home.

Recalling burgh childhood

Hi,

I recently came across the Helensburgh Heritage Trust website and I enjoyed browsing through the many photos, especially those of Hermitage School.

I lived in Helensburgh from the age of three and I attended Hermitage primary and then senior school from 1949 till 1958.

Photo brought back memories

I STUMBLED upon the Heritage Trust website while browsing through Helensburgh history.

One picture in the Photo Gallery in particular caught my attention — the picture of the Helensburgh Scottish Country Dance Group, taken in 1951 at the Queens Hotel.
