      The UK is a pretty racially and culturally diverse country, so I'm guessing most of us on here have more than one ethnic or racial background. Anyone care you share?

      I'll go first:

      My paternal grandfather was Greek and my paternal grandmother was Armenian .
      Now, Armenia is in Asia, behind Turkey, but technically considered 'white', although my grandmother was very middle-eastern/Persian looking, so I do think of myself as bi-racial in that sense.


      My maternal grandfather was Scottish, from Inverness and claimed to have had both Irish and Spanish in him, but I'll just go with the de facto Scottish.
      My maternal grandmother was pretty mixed herself. her father was Irish from Galway and her mother was English from Liverpool, but had a Welsh grandmother.

      So at the very least, I am a mixture of Greek, Armenian, Scottish, Irish, English and Welsh, with the added possibility of having Spanish as well as even Turkish and Iranian/Persian from the Armenian side...

      It's a hard act to follow guys, but please do try :-D

      That's pretty cool. I find cross-continent mixtures fascinating. You can come up with some pretty unique combination of features.

      did you know him, if so was you close to him?

      when you got older and learned about the war etc did your opinion of him change?

      don't have to answer if you don't want to mate, just interested
