On "Scotlandspeople.gov.uk" I found the birth record for your Andrew. He was born at 29 Milton Road, Kirkcaldy. His father was William McBain (grocer) and his mother Christina.

His death record shows he died in 1976, aged 79 and that was recorded at Kirkcaldy, but no further details available on the website. Someone else may now pick up the story for you, perhaps remembering a grandparent.

Further to last post I have found a marriage record for Andrew McBain who married Jean Smith Urie at Kirkcaldy by the minister of Abbotshall Church on 10th October 1923.

Andrews parents were still alive but Jean's father was deceased.

The witnesses to the marriage were David B McBain who lived at same address as Andrew so possibly a brother? Also, Mary Smith Urie living at same address as bride so possibly a sister.

I searched births for the next few years and found a Jean Smith McBain born in 1928. Taking it further I found a Jean Smith McBain who married a Cecil Alex Mosley in 1952.

Because more modern records are not all computerised yet there is no way to verify the data and any further search would just be guesswork.

However this may be enough for living family to recognise the details.

Good luck:-)

Niek, I am still researching this for you - it might help if I knew how you came by the ID papers
