Good to see this photo Vairi, thats my Dad, Sammy Hossack in the middle. I think at this time he worked for a cable jointing company called Henleys, and this was a 'reserved occupation'. I remember hearing the name Biddy Marks, any connection? Comment left on 23 February 2005 at 07:44 by Catherine Penman, (nee Hossack)
Yes Vairi ...I would also be interested if there is any connection to Biddy and Winnie Marks ?

Ewan Gillies looks like a film star! The Gillies are a handsome family. Comment left on 24 February 2005 at 04:33 by Margaret Tong
Yes John they are brother and sisters. Winnie is the oldest then Albert (Jim) and Biddy is the youngest. Comment left on 26 February 2005 at 17:17 by Vairi Anderson
