I have been directed to post on this board because of the Scottish name. I have been searching for info. about Jim Weir/ his
family. He was a Canadian in RCAF in WW11. I am a'war baby' and
the outcome of a liason between him and my mother, who was married at
the time to someone else. Because of the sensitivity of the situation,
I have never known my roots because, in the past, many people would
rather 'not get involved'. We live now in a different century with a
changed thinking and I sincerely hope that because of this I will find
'where I belong'. Jim told my mother that he had lived in Saskatchewan
and had connections in Quebec. He said he was a teacher in 'civy' life
was married with 2 baby sons[ in 1944]. I believe his rank was
Lieutenant and I can only guess at the squadrons. I was born in
Pembroke Dock South Wales UK. in 1945 therefore he was in P.D. around
September 1944. He is/was very tall with a gingery/fair
complexion and my guess at his D.O.B. would be between 1910--1920. Any info. however small would be greatly welcolmed.I have my story, also, on http.www.project-roots.com/weirj.html [although since that was published I have found his ID number to be wrong and I have only guessed at the squadrons] Many thanks for this opportunity
Sylvia Lister
