To Lewis,

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:


I am desperately looking for any trace of my family who were in Burma in the 1940s.

William Mclean was a civil engineer/subdivisional officer - married to Maria/Marie - originally from

Syriam (later moving to Rangoon).

William Alfred Richard Mclean and His wife Maria/Marie moved to Rangoon before the war with

their children: Harold, John, Kathleen (also known as Kitty) and other sisters who were educated at

St John's Convent School in Rangoon.

HAROLD Vivien Mclean ("Bunny") later married Eunice KIRK and had two children (Michael and

Julie Mclean).

JOHN Mclean is said to have died in floods on the infamous trek to India during WW2.

Possible connections include the HAMILTON and BARRETT families originally from Syriam.

I would be most grateful for any information however insignificant it may seem.

Maybe I can help a bit.
