Many thanks. I am trying to get to know my extended family.
Son 1 Andrew Russell....Babcock and Wilcox engineer who built Dunganess B power station. Son 2 Harold (Harry) Russell Admiral RCN, he disappeared for 2 plus year after WW2, for whatever he did he received letters of appreciation from McKenzie King PM of Canada, DeGaulle, France, President Rosevelt and Sir Winston. 3 my father and 7 fellow Scots in Malaya fought the Japanese as civilians knocking the full consequences. As the army retreated he and his fellow Scots were conscripted in the 2 battalion of the Argyll Highland regiment..he was in the first wave of the death march,Singapore, Makaya!Thailand to the Kwai river . After a long recovery, the Imperial Japonese were unaccustomed to the concept of humanity, he returned to Cicely Rubber Estates in Perak, Malaya. 4 Scott disappeared after the war in most unusual circumstances and we believe MI6 would know more.5 Charlie RAF, after the war he and 2 friend started Malay,Singaore and Borneo airlines; presently known as Singapore Airlines. We lived on a remote rubber plantation and I remember acting as Sir Douglas Bader''s caddie and later he took me up in a Tiger Moth.
I am interested in pre Andrew Purdon. Can anyone help?
