Their mother is the baby girl Minnie Annabel Jane Stewart who was born in June 1918. Her older brother Donald is behind. I think this picture dates from possibly Nov 1918 the end of first world war in India where their Grandfather was stationed.”

Alex, a friend and frequent contributor to this page told me, “Yes the wee girl was my mother, she and my uncle Donald in the picture were born in India. My grandfather had been posted to India after serving in South Africa and my grandmother Williamina Anderson sailed out from Scotland to marry him. Quite a journey on her own at that time.”
