My Grandfather who I never knew. James Miller born in Melbourne, Australia, 26/07/1913 never knew his father. His wife Ruby Higgott (nee Mills) never saw him after he left Melboune for London to join the New Zealand war effort. He never made it home to his wife and two sons. His wife without a war pension had to give up her sons, my father changed the family name to that of the family who took him in. He spent his whole life feeling he was unwanted by his family and he never knew what had happened to his father. I only discovered this story following my father's death at 80. My mother gave me his birth and name change papers. I now have a family history we never knew.
