 The Editor has had a note from Charles Miller who is the eldest of four brothers whose parents were with the Chulsa Company in the Dooars but left in 1950 as hIs father, on Doctors advice, had to return to Scotland as he had just survived a normally fatal Blackwater Fever for the second time

The family consists of

FATHER;   John Irvine Miller  Same family as famous "Bruce Millers" music shop in Union Street, Aberdeeen.  (Alas, after trading for over 100 years the business closed  in 2010, falling victim when the recession and Internet combined.)

MOTHER:  Rose henderson Miller, (nee Moir) born in nearby Turriff. her family moved to Hammerfield AvenueAberdeen where her mother taught Braille to the Blind.

ME:   I am Charles Alexander Miller born 18/11/39 in Great Eden Hospital  Calcutta (although our home was Samsing)
My India-born younger brothers , all born in Mount Herman Hospital Darjeeling are:

TIMOTHY Miller; a babe in arms when the family left India , he has no memories of life in India from that period.
