I am still willing to look up names in the Morayshire Roll of Honour. This is a biographical record of the men and women connected with the county who took part in the Great War 1914 - 1918. First names, birth dates or addresses help as there can be many with the same surname.

Frances, I realize that the name IMLACH which I am researching is not on your Surname List and the immediate ancestors of our family are from Buckie, Banffshire, however I would grateful to know if there are any listings of the extended IMLACH family who may have come from Morayshire who served in W.W.1 are on the Honour Roll. Thank you. Kathleen.

Dear Frances,
I would be very grateful if you would look up my grandfather in the Moray Roll of honour.
His name was WILLIAM BRODIE CAMERON
born 05 10 1893 in Forres. All I know is that he fought in the Belgian trenches in WW1.
Thankyou very much for taking the trouble.
Best regards, Kam vdBerg-Cameron.

Hi Kam

I realise that it is a long time since you posted this but William Brodie Cameron was my grandfather Robert's brother. He survived WWI as I remember him as a child. My mother may remember him more. If you would like more information please let me know.

Regards

Laura

Hi Laura,
great to hear from you. I remember my grandfather very well, he died when I was 36. I have managed to trace the Camerons back to David and Margaret Ross (our g.g.g.grandparents). I would love to hear about your immediate family and also compare research info. All I know about great-uncle Robert is that he married Mary Berrie, had two children Mary and Robert, was a plasterer and moved to Inverness. I expect I met him as a child but I don't remember him.
Look forward to hearing from you,
warm regards, Kam

Hi Kam

Robert Cameron, William Cameron's father was the plasterer and he married Annie Brodie, and lived in Tolbooth Street in Forres, William's brother Robert is my grandfather and he married Lizzie Ann Forsyth in Keith and moved to Inverness as he was in the Railways. He also had a sister Margaret (Aunt Cis) who never married. My mother Mary Cameron has a few photos of Robert and Annie from the 1920s and also of my grandfather Robert, if you would like to see them I can ask her to look them out when I am in Inverness next week and scan then email them to if you let me know your email address. I think she also has a newspaper cutting showing your grandparents who could not attend my mum's wedding in 1952 as they were in London to receive an award. Fantastic to speak to you. Regards Laura

Hi Laura,
yes of course, my mistake....I remember the story that Uncle Robert would sound the train's whistle when going through Elgin to say hello to family.
I also remember visiting Auntie Cissie at Novar estate every summer and watching the salmon. She had a small yappy dog!
I would love to see the photos, I have some old ones too which I can scan for you. How are you doing with your familytree? my email is kamcameron@hetnet.nl....I'm in the Netherlands, where are you?
regards, Kam

My great uncle's name was Private Robert Hay. He was killed in action Sept.4th/1918. I believe he was with the 13th Battalion Royal Fusiliers.

I also believe he was born in 1888

He was the son of James and Jane Hay of Cummingston Morayshire.

Anything you find, I would greatly appreciate.
