|Bio and Links|
|I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.|
Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

I am a member of a group recording the deaths of Military Policemen.

Hi Iain and thank you very much for providing photos of LS Watt. I carry out a lot of research both for my own family, my husband's and friends and I cannot remember for definite at this stage which tree LS Watt fits into. However when I get a little spare time I will run through the trees and find him. Very addictive family research as you may well know yourself. Have a good day and feel free to email me if you would like:

I've had you and your travels on my mind recently. In reading over your last message, you mentioned requesting "famous" memorials to parents. I also had thought of sending some of those requests. Turns out, Findagrave has a POLICY against linking "famous" unless their parents/sibs are also famous. I guess they call themselves protecting privacy/preventing stalking activity. Whatever. If most or all have left this mortal coil, I don't see the point. Irritating. I just start in another direction.
Did I see your name on Wikipedia? I mean as an editor. I have little doubt you are mentioned as a musician. I was looking at some contributor pages, and wondered if I might be seeing your handiwork. The internet is so vast, and yet, stranger things have happened. We [human beings] most of us travel in certain circles, and somehow seem to contact the same people in different contexts. Or not.
