Looking for Ross MacFarlane – Thanks Linda Macfarlane




Hi Linda,

I just got a call from an archive library guy somewhere in the UK. A bracelet was found and they are trying to tack down owner’s family. Ross MacFarlane son of Clare and George MacFarlane from Carleton Place . The bracelet says on back: “From Eileen or Elaine” which they think was a sister and dated 1942 and has his air force number.  Like how cool to find this guys living relatives and get it back to them as he was killed in the war. Can you help ? Do you know this family?
