I'm filling in an application for a Scottish Police Force and I'm a bit stumped as to what to put as my "Ethinic Origin" as I'm a right mungral. The options are White British - -Scottish  -English  -Welsh  -Nothern Irish  -Other (Please enter below)  Other White - Irish  Now I could tick most of those boxes. Normally I just tick White British and be done with it, however with ethnic targets in recruitment...... My Dad's side of the family is straight forward, Mix of English and Cornish (No-one really knows where my Great Grandmother came from, she (Bar Maid) married my great Grand Father (City Trader). Now my Mothers side of the family is a little more confusing. Mum's Mum's family were 100% Yorkshire but her Fathers side of the Family settle in Scotland in the late 1800's, they were from southern Ireland. However my Grandfather was born in Belfast (or maybe Glasgow) due to complications with the birth while she was in Southern Ireland trying to find my great grand father who had done a runner from her. She found him and brought him back to Scotland (1917ish). So my Grandfather could say he was either Irish or Scots but his loyalty was alway to the UK (He served in the RAF (rear gunner) before being transfered to the Army after he completed all his required missions and punching his CO. He met my Gran in 1945 and Mum was born in 1946 but was born in Yorkshire (out of wed lock) but grew up in Scotland from the age of one. Now my Father was born in England but his family moved to Scotland in the 1950's and continued to raise a family (Half sound Scots, half sound English all with mixed loyalty to England/Scotland). I was born in Scotland and support both Scotland and England in sporting events. To me Scotland is my home. Now am I Scottish because I was born here or am I Anglo-Cornish-Irish. Although the only Irish connection the family has ever had is the odd pint of the guinness so I would be more of an Anglo-Scot-Cornish. Does that make me mixed race? Why can't I just put down British?
