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