Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

Hugh Wales died in Canada 12th April 1995 age 84, according to his wife's obituary. She died 12th Feb 2008 age 97, in her native Canada. He had a footballing brother and father both called Abraham. Does anyone know anything about them as they are distantly related to me?

Regards
