Gina and George
Genevera (Gina) and George McGhie

All of us have ancestors, some we know and some we don't. For me finding out I had 3 Great Uncles and two Great Aunts did not happen until a few years ago, many decades after they had passed on.

They all have stories to tell but George McGhie is the one Great Uncle that has captured my interest. It is a story of mystery and tragedy, only a little of which can be pieced together.

The tragedy is that he died due to illness, shortly after enlisting in the army and being shipped to Malaya. He died June 6th 1941.
