Hi there- I am a researcher and my client is trying to piece together her late father's childhood. Born in 1925, John Askew was raised by his great grandmother, Agnes Askew (nee Grant). They lived in Glasgow but spent a lot of time at Garelochhead. There are vague memories of John helping out a man on the pier with ropes possibly, and helping out at the harbour....but only vague memories. I would be so interested if anyone knows anything! I know this is a long shot. Thank you!
