Pte. Andrew Shivas

This is a picture of my uncle Pte. Andrew Shivas. The approximate date is 1939. It was taken when he first joined the Seaforth Highlanders 4th Battalion, 51st Division, and before going to war.

This has the look of a formal portrait. I wonder if it was taken by "Duguid" who seemed to photograph anything that moved in Invergordon in my youth. He did work for the local paper and always lugged around a big plate camera. I have asked before if anyone has found his archive of photos. If it survived it would present a wonderful historic archive of life in the town.

Andrew was moved to Teschen, Polish/Czech border in 1943. John B and Andrew Shivas were both POWs at Stalag VIIIB. They were with the Seaforth Highlanders. Andrew Shivas was moved in 1943 when the renumbering of the camps took place and Stalag VIIIB was applied to Teschen, and Lamsdorf was renamed to Stalag 344.
