my Grandfather Angus McCharles

My father is Eric. His father Angus.

Born 1900. Died 1949 of heart attack.

He was “an ardent outdoor man and keenly interested in both domestic and wild animals. He was well known for his hobby of raising chinchillas, keeping mink, guinea pigs, rabbits and canaries“.

Grandpa trapped that silver fox. Had the fur made into a collar on my Grandma’s winter coat.
