To Barry Wight,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

My mother NELLIE HELEN Scheppelmann, left Burma in 1948 and came to live in the UK having married my father Harry Foreman Wight, who was serving with the British forces in Burma during the war.

She had a sister RUBY Scheppelmann, who unfortunately did not survive the war.

Her father was a Professor of education, and her passport states she was born in Henzada, lower Burma, although Meiktila is also mentioned on the back of certain pictures.

I would dearly love to hear from anyone who could shed any light on my mothers family, as unfortunately having died a number of years ago, the family connection to Burma is very sketchy.

If you can supply any information at all I would be very appreciative, however limited the info may be.

Kind Regards Barry Wight

Maybe I can help a bit.
