 I have exhausted all avenues so I am hoping someone can help me. I will tell you all I know. My Grandfather fought in World war 2, I believe he was stationed in England. He lived in Brechin Angus Scotland. His skills were being a Mechanic and Engineer. I have found an insert in an Almanac in Brechin Library showing his name being on a Muster Roll under the R.A.F. as a instructor.. I have been told by a friend of my Grandfathers who is elderly that he was responsible for the balloon barrages. I am the eldest grandchild and have been searching for several years. If he is noted in an Almanac there must be some information somewhere out there. Here is the details:

Frank Lawson Smart-born Apr.2/1901 in Kirriemuir Angus Scotland

Wife: Elizabeth Lindsay Nicoll

resided 3B Castle Str Brechin

Parents William Smart and Anne Robertson Lawson

He died May 1981 in Canada coming here after the war.
