If anyone wishes to write to Iris with clan news or information her address is -: Iris MacAulay, Matriarch of Block Island, RI 02807, USA. Iris declares herself proud and happy to be on the list of "Great MacAulays" She recalls seeing Thomas Babington MacAulay in his ermine robe in Tussaud's waxworks in London, when she was 7 years old. She believes that Thomas Babington was her 5th Great Uncle. Her older son Aulay is a much decorated Vietnam Veteran and retired a full Colonel. She declares herself a sentimental Grandmother with eight Grandchildren. She has nine great -grandchildren, one granddaughter and husband aged forty and married fifteen years, now expecting twin grandchildren. So the blood is still strong. It is possible, no likely, that Aulay would have heard of Wayne, and of Richard Bong.
