Finding Wee Paddy

The incredible true story of elderly Northern Irishwoman Sara Moran’s unwavering quest to locate and honour her uncle’s lost grave.

British soldier Patrick McGowan died helping save the life of a civilian during the Battle of Shanghai in 1937. Although buried a hero, decades of political and industrial transformation in Shanghai meant his grave was lost and forgotten by everyone except Sara, who led a one-woman media campaign to find his grave culminating in a remarkable piece of historical detective work.
