The next photo is of Joe in his kilt, what a belter this one was

There has been recent information from South Africa from Robbie Lamb.   Robbie is a descendant of Susan’s brother.   He has sent us the following information and we would like to thank him now for this.

In the year 1918 Joe married Susan Anderson Lamb who he probably met while he was in the army.   The Royal Scots was an Edinburgh based Division of the Army with their headquarters at Edinburgh Castle.   Susan came from Loanhead, just a short distance from the Capital.   It was here that they married St.Margaret’s Church in the village.

The Wiki write up on the Barracks is quite informative  –  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glencorse_Barracks

Joe Giulianotti served  with 3rd Battalion Royal Scots, who were at this time  in reserve and based in Mullingar Ireland

  • 3rd (Reserve) Battalion
  • August 1914 : in Glencorse, Edinburgh. A training unit, it remained in UK throughout the war.
  • Moved in August 1914 to Weymouth. Returned to Edinburgh May 1915.

Glencorse

Glencorse

The Royal Scots Regimental Depot was located at Glencorse Barracks from 1880 to 1960. It then became The Lowland Brigade Depot and is now The Army Training Regiment (Glencorse), The Scottish Division Depot. The gates at Glencorse Barracks were erected as a Memorial to those Royal Scots who died during the Great War 1914- 18. The money to pay for this memorial was raised through the generosity of serving and past officers of the Regiment, old Royal Scots and their friends. The memorial is in the form of wrought-iron gates, supported on circular stone pillars, flanked by small side gates, imposing stone gatehouses and outer wing walls. The opening ceremony was performed on 18 March 1927 by HRH Princess Mary, Colonel in Chief.

A bit about Joe Giulianotti’s family kindly given to us by Bert Munro who was married

  • Joe’s older son, Albert (“Bert”) married Iris Cane, from St. Albans, early in WW2. They had one child, a daughter named Janice (“Jan”).Jan married myself in 1961 and we had two sons, Robert and Stephen. After our divorce in 1968 Jan enrolled at Aberdeen University and was awarded her degree in Social Work. She and our sons moved to Bedford in 1972 where she worked as a medical social worker, and remarried 2 years later. Jan’s parents, Bert and Iris, also moved to Bedford in the 1980sAfter the war, Iris worked with Joe in his chip shop in Tillydrone, Aberdeen until, I believe, Joe’s death in 1968 (Susan had died a year or two earlier).
  • Sad to say, Iris died in the mid 1990s and Jan died in 1998. Our son Stephen died in 2010 while living in Cambridge and our other son, Robert, continues to live in Bedford, as does his grandfather, Bert, now in his 90s.Sad to say, Iris died in the mid 1990s and Jan died in 1998. Our son Stephen died in 2010 while living in Cambridge

  • Another correspondence  has recently came through from Peter Cain who remembers his aunt  Iris and Bert  Giulianotti.
  • Iris Cane  was my aunt. She had three brothers, Reginald, Leonard and Maurice. Maurice is my father – lives just outside Cambridge, 80 next year. Maurice was the youngest and their mother (nee Butcher) died when he was a child. He was subsequently brought up by Mabel Butcher.I remember visiting Bert when he still had his eyesight, was amazed at his prowess with the metalworking lathe he kept in his back room. I was told his gammy leg was the result of a glider accident.

    I think my brother is researching the Cain side, not sure how far he has got.

     Joe’s other son, Fred Giulianotti moved to Wales after the war, married and had two sons, Brenton and John.

 

Hope this fills in some gaps in what is a great family history.

    Joe’s sons were Albert and Fred, NOT Raymond. Joe’s brother, Enrico, had two sons named Albert and Raymond who still live in Aberdeen. Joe’s son, “Bert”, lives in Bedford, England.

    I well remember visiting Joe’s brother, Tony (Angelina’s father) in London in 1957 along with Joe, Susan, Bert, Iris and Jan.

    Hope this fills in some gaps in what is a great family history.
