Yes Yvonne, Harold is the son of Alick Cameron, Shoemaker.
Added by Grace Mackenzie on 14 June 2013
is this his son as my grand dad was born in 1911 which would mean a big age gap ?? And do you know of any other siblings? thanks again for your help as my granddad was killed in ww2 so there are no one to ask any more,

Yvonne - The Camerons were a big family. As far as I remember the brother who died in WW2 was Tom but I'm not sure about this. The others were Ian, Hector, Finlay, Eric, Harold, Jessie, Chrissie, Elgra (Elizabeth Grace), Hermy, Vivienne, Rita and Catherine. I can't put them in order of age but Harold would have been second youngest, followed by Hermy. There is a page on Facebook "Avoch Past and Present" where you can see some old photos of Avoch. I can remember your great grandfather - he was also janitor in Avoch school.

Hi Yvonne, my name is Allan Cameron, Harold is my father, sadly he passed away three years ago next month aged 81,
Hermy still stays in the area and Vivienne is in America . Tom was killed in WW2, I think he was married to a Madge and they had one daughter together . I am sure Hermy will have photos of yor your great grandmother , her mother which I might be able to copy and send to you.
