Scottish Roots!

So family tree, everyone has one. It’s curious to discover that one does indeed have Scottish roots. I must say I really love this photo of my Scottish great grandfather Hugh Frizzell of Greenock, who knew? I certainly did not know I had a great grandfather jumping out on the trenches fighting the Hun in the Great War 1914-18. It transpires he served with the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders as a Corporal and after being shot was sent home and eventually transferred to the Royal Engineers.  Fascinating stuff!

Here he my great grandfather Hugh Frizzell with his wife Christina Frizzell (formerly Sutherland) at their marriage in 1904
