Hi, just a thought, you mentioned James H. McD. MacKinnon in one of your letters, he was my Father. Do you have any more information of him? He was killed on the 23rd march 1945.
Thanks for your time,
Regards,
Patricia Taylor.

I asked Patricia for more information about her father to help us find more if possible.
