Hi all
My Mum sadly passed away recently, and I have been going through her things. I have came across an old photo and paper clips from back in the old days when my great great grandfather was a well known man. There is a school report he got from Inverbrothock Public School, and a photo of him and some of his buddies, all sitting on a bench with their caps on. He was in the Brotherhood at that time and various other memberships.
I never knew my mothers side as my grand father had moved to Edinburgh, and that was the only family side of my mums I knew.
So my great great grandfather was James Patterson
My great Grandfather was James Patterson
My grand father was James Patterson
And his son was James Patterson (who sadly died very very young). One of the newspaper clip photos is all four together, in Arbroath.
My Mums name is Veronica (Vera). Grimley ( Patterson).
So if anyone is related, give me a quick call, email. I will post the photos later. Cheers.

I attended Inverbrothock School during the war. The air raid shelters were at the back of the school and I well remember the excitement when the sirens wailed and we were frogmarched there complete with gas masks. Fortunately we never had to use them but we did have fun practising.
