Hi Carmen My father was Alexander Napier Aitken. The South American connection was through his mother's brother ( or my father's maternal uncle ). He was Richard Blake who went to Chignayante, Chile and worked as an engineer in the lace mills there. He returned to the UK during WW1 to enlist and was killed in France in 1916. My father spent most of his younger years in the Far East ...India Ceylon Malaya and Java/Sumatra.
