Robert Hodgson contacted The Hamilton Advertiser, as he is trying to trace someone, Robert wrote:
“Hello, I am trying to trace Jim who lived at 38 Burnbank Road in 1941. There were three people called Jim lived there around that time; Jim Lawson with his wife Helen, Jim Yuill with his wife Agnes, and Jim L. Stirling with his wife, also called Agnes.
They gave a Robert Burns poetry book to either my father or mother, Jack Hodgson and Edwina (nee) Hanlon who both came from Leeds.
They didn’t know each other at this time but were in the RAMC and Red Cross during 1941.
Any clues would be welcome for me to follow up. I’d like to contact the descendants of Jim who wrote the message in the book. Thanks.”
We thought that we would ask the Historic Hamilton Readers, as we know you guys are really great detectives. Can you help Robert with tracking down anyone mentioned here? Let us know.
