I am looking into my family history in Scotland. My Great grandfather was a John McLarty. He died on Dec 25th, 1915 in Gallipoli, Turkey and is buried in the Helles Farm gravesite. He was a member of 1st/5 BN Highland Light Infantry, Rgt # 1694
I have been told that he left a widow with a number of children including my Grandfather who eventually moved as a young man to Canada. He served with the Canadian Navy during the second WW and died in the early 60's (Vancouver).
My Grandfather was the only son and had a number of sisters whom I believe all remained in Scotland. My Father, Kenneth was an only son and only had sisters.
I would be very happy to know of any family in Scotland that may be left...
