STEWART AT SEAFORTH
any information about the soldiers in this photo or the story below would be very welcome please - firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the photo I was talking about. It is taken (we think) at Seaforth training camp. My Great grandfather Samuel Stewart is at the front, left of the photo. I don't know any of the others. The family story goes that Samuel broke his leg going onto the transport ship and the rest of the soldiers pictured here were wiped out on the Somme. - Alison Aldersea

I have a presentation that was presented to my great grandfather in 1923 but sadly none of the family know who presented it to him, why etc... it is an amazing art piece by a recognised artist. the list of men at the bottom of the presentation are untraceable - I am getting desperate to find out more about it.

nb - it's not the Constantine O'Neill, grocer listed in the street directories, Constantine was a Marine merchant and his father called Francis was a Hacker and died young at the age of 28
AICKEN - MALCOLM
The first group picture I believe was taken around 1870 and I am 99% sure the elderly man seated is Peter Aicken of Belfast (Regent Street) born 1800 and died July 29, 1875. His wife Margaret Grahames also seated on his right. I believe the remaining woman are his daughters Ann Jane (married to John Hyde), Sarah (married to William John Thompson), Mary (married to William Reid Stewart) and Margaret (who later married to John Malcolm). I have not been able to identify which woman is who nor have I been able to track their whereabouts or lineage. The only exception is Margaret who is my 2nd great grandmother.
The second photo is John Manson Malcolm and his wife Emiline “Rene” Lithgow Rogers. This is their wedding photo from June 17, 1908. I am looking for any information about where they ended up and their three children Angela Claire, Ian Douglas, Rosemary Roxyln

The young man in this photo may still be alive and living in Belfast:-
The story goes the picture is of a mother 2 daughters
and son - its the son we are more keen to trace, we think the family name is
DOYLE from Belfast,
the picture was taken around 1946/7
- and one of the girls we think is called
Katherine, the other is unknown,
one or both of them were singers of some description.
We have more information but I think that will be sufficient to get the ball rolling for now.

looking for a poem?
It's a bit of a long shot, as I don't have a lot of
information on it, but the poem was written by (or for) a Connaught
Ranger, I believe the night before a battle. He talks about how the
landscape of Tripoli reminds him of the Clare mountains back home... the
poem may or may not be in Irish? I would love to be able to track this
down - any help much appreciated! ....Robert

Seeking Colin F. Nye ex-RAF
I am trying to trace Colin F. Nye, who probably lived at 17 Killard Place, Finaghy. He was one of 35 boys who trained as armourers in the 91st Entry of Aircraft Apprentices at RAF Halton in 1959-1961. Later this year will be the 50th anniversary our Passing Out from RAF Halton and I would like to contact Colin with reference to this. There are very tentative rumours that he may have married a girl from Morocco while serving at Gibraltar, but no further details have surfaced. Colin's father was probably Fredrick T. Nye who was an engineer. If anyone knows anything that might help me track down Colin, please pass them to me:
