During this time I met my wife to be, Margaret
Tedford, also born in Whiteinch. In the year of
1961 I was conscripted to the RAF, and was sent
overseas to Egypt, in 1O9 M.U. RAF Abyad. Came
home to my old job then moved to Rolls Royce, in
Hillington. From here I was transfered to Rolls
Royce in Hamilton. As life moved on I emigrated
to USA, in 1965. This did not work out too well,
as I became very ill shortly after. Returning
home, I got a job with RR in East Kilbride where
I lived for 3 years. In 1968 I decided to try USA
again, this time with my wife and 3 children. As
you can see I have been here for 3O years and
never looked back. We have been home on holiday
several times and we enjoy roaming around the
country of our birth. As a matter of fact we have
seen more of Scotland, than we had ever seen when
we lived there; I still huv ma Glesswegian accent

over here are fascinated by it. They cannie
