Born Phillip Miller, as mother Joan was the widow of Kenneth Miller at the time of the baby's birth (but Ken was not his father), but perhaps due to the difficulty of being a single mother in the 40's Phillip was given up for adoption, perhaps in 1947, and renamed Brian. The putative father was a friend of Joan's father, Arthur McLean.
Ruth Rideout posted on Ancestry searching for information of her adoptive brother's birth mother, Joan Thompson. Joan Thompson was married Kenneth Miller who died in Feb 1945. Ken's niece and nephew have made contact and are sharing with Brian what they know of his mother. Luckily their grandfather John Miller kept very good records, albums and letters. Truly a good news genealogy story!
