"My father, James Morton Robertson, was born at 16 South Richmond Street in 1911 and went to James Clark School. 

In 1936, he married Maybelle Paterson who was born near West Calder in 1916.  They moved to 4 Heriot Mount, top flat.

They had 2 children, James Morton Robertson (me) and Brian Samuel Frank Robertson.

Both my father and mother worked at the North British Rubber Mills in Fountainbridge.

My father had volunteered for the RAF but was killed on his first mission which was an operation using Hampden Torpedo Bombers to sink the Tirpitz.  They had to fly to Murmansk but his plane was shot down.  The plane is now being rebuilt by the RAF Museum."
