Hi, I came accross your blog searching formy Granfather, Duncan McCallum, who I knew nothing about until the Late 1990’s! Obviously, we are related? My mother, Pearl Elizabth, and her younger sister, Katherine May (my Aunty) never spoke about him. I have a locket with Duncan’s photo in it, which my mother wore in a photo of the family, possibly taken in 1919? ove to hear from you soon. Barbara.
Thank you Barbara,
Your message has touched me deeply. My great grandfather Donald McCallum was Duncan’s brother. I to never knew about him till 2 years ago when my father showed me Duncan’s war record. Donald I think was a pacifist and was deeply hurt at his brother’s death. I found out as much as I could but drew a blank at his family Pearl ? I went to their old house in Lidcome and I knew they called the house Passendale after the place where Duncan was killed in that terrible battle. As you see from the website I visited there 2 years ago. I have always thought about him. I’ll get in touch. Alex
