Rifleman John Hartman.
A request for help from Ann Hartman of Blantyre regarding her late father who served in Malaya with the regiment.
Hi Douglas my name is Ann Hartman my father served in the cameronians in the early 1950s he served in Malaysia. Sadly when I was only 5 mths old he died of meningitis in May 1955 .My mother remarried when I was very young and i was told very little about my father .After my stepfather died I tried to get info about my father but by that time my mother had dementia .I have no relatives on his side to ask and most of my mothers siblings are now dead .My mother died in March this year and i have tried to get any info I can .Ideally it would mean everything to me if I could find anyone who served with him who may have photos or could tell me what kind of man he was .You are my last hope as I don't know we're to turn next .I would be very grateful for any help you could give me and thank you in advance .All I have to connect me to my father is his bible and cap badge which I treasure Yours Sincerely
