So sorry for your loss. I never managed to meet John but as my Dads brother we only recently got aquatinted due to our mutual DNA match- a lucky chance for me. Although I knew John existed I had literally no real knowledge of that side of my family or where they were- I do now and wasn’t disappointed. I loved reading his regular journals he sent me and his love of his family and surroundings were evident in every line he wrote. Rest in peace John Your nephew Alan Morrison Scotland
