My latest acquisition is a Talana clasp to the Dundee Town Guard. McGirk

If anyone has any knowledge of him I would be most appreciative of the information.

Apologies Adrian - Steers beckoned and I was in haste! It is MA - his name seems to have been Max Alfred Huhn, later changed to McGirk - Benjamin was his brother.

QSA (1) Talana
