ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Nicola Report 18 Oct 2012 21:48

Hello, I wonder if anyone maybe able to help. I am trying to trace a George Campbell who was in the Navy during WW2, from Newcastle, aged 22 years of age by 1947/48, a miner prior to WW2 and recorded as a Protesant. George was deployed by 1947. Not much information I know. Any information greatly received.

Many Thanks

Having had a look at what is written about him on Ancestry (I assume by yourself) may I just ask why you think he was from Newcastle not Scotland?

Hello Jan,

Thank you for replying. Annie my fathers birth mother gave the details on the adoption record of my fathers. Dad was b 1947 and officially adopted in 1948. Annie mentioned that George was from Newcastle. Dad was born on Rothesay, Isle of Bute. I know that is where there was a Naval base. Annie was from Glasgow. Yes, I have also mentioned George on my tree (MacSween) and mentioned what I have above under , more details. Hope this helps.
