Hope you are still online.  I found your comment re Carrol Children's Home Inverness.  I stayed there at Island bank road, a much happier experience than many in the previous place

Hi Harold,

I found the following POW information on that might about your Dad. I guess the best way to verify the information would be to match his service number. If you don't have it you could probably request his records from the UK National Archives:

Name: G.A. Douglas

Rank: Corporal

Army No: 2921926

Regt: Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders

POW No: 18150

Camp type: Stalag

Camp No: 383

Location: Hohenfels, Rhineland-Palatinate

Record Office: Infantry Record Office, Perth

Record Office No: 16

I hope this helps.

Hi Harry,

I too was called Harry but lost the nickname when I joined the Army.

It sounds like you were named after your uncle Harold Dixon Douglas who recently died at the age of 94. I visited Inverness a few years ago, but sadly wasn't aware he was alive at the time.  I'm in contact with his daughter.

Good luck with your search and let me know if I can help in any way.



Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
