  • Allan Henderson Fairmaid was my Uncle....only brother of my Mother Bettie Lawson. I visited Hendersons grave in Brussells 7 years ago and was so impressed that the war graves site was pristine amongst 17 century graves......I never got to meet my Uncle but he has been talked about all of our lives...his wife Betty is still alive and lives in Canada....remembered forever...RIP Allan Henderson Fairmaid
