    CSM John Charles McVay

    Hello

    I am grand son of Sargent Major John McVay and I am looking for information and photographs of him. I know he served in Palestine with 2nd Battalion, he also served in Egypt and that he came from Inverkeithing in Fife Scotland.

    He married a Jewish girl and they had my mother who was born in Tel Aviv. I would love to know more but he and my gran split in mid 1950's - he went to Canada but unfortunately I never met him and I believe he died around late 90's.

    Any information and help very much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    David Mitchell

    Hi David and welcome to the Forums,

    I will have a look through the Red Hackle Magazines to see if there is any mention of John Charles.

    In the meantime can you tell me the year he was born.

    He married Sylvia Spector in Jerusalem 8th February 1940. The marriage certificate refers to Military Station as Jhansi.

    Thank you again, David Mitchell
