Nan was born in Rangoon, Burma and her Mother sadly took her own life to save her and brothers from poverty. They were shipped from Burma to England where they were fostered, as the Grandparents did not want mixed race Grandchildren. Sadly as we see all over the world not all church people believe in the same God. They were made to sleep and eat in a shed and treated like servants. Back then the English authorities did not batter an eye lid at their suffering. Thankfully things have sort of changed now. Although there is still a lot of room for change as compassion does not seem to be on the top of our Governments agenda. And there are still a lot of people worldwide that bully others over race, status and what they like to term as intelligence (I prefer to say they are blessed with a good memory.) However, Wales is a Country to be proud of with their amazing free prescription service, which makes sure poor people are not punished. The English Government however do not understand what it is like to struggle financially as they all come from wealthy families, so therefore getting rid of the NHS is something that would not affect them as they can afford private health care and no doubt prefer it.
I got in touch with a person that had really studied the Myles family history and he has not come across my Great Grandad. Looks like the scandal of the mixed marriage was covered up very well! I am proud of my family history as being mixed race makes you more human and less selfish.
