Scotland Gathering

Scotland Branch Secretary, Dr Robert Murray (1968S) reports: "On a day which could only be described by the Scots word dreich (grey, cold, wet, and windy - i.e. normal for autumn) brave Scottish ODs gathered in a cosy inn just beneath the southern end of the Forth Bridge to meet, sample the finest local brews, do justice to a fine Sunday roast, and remember Bishops. The view, mist and rain aside, has recently become more spectacular with the appearance of yet another bridge across the Firth of Forth.

Present were front, left to right: Peter McMorland (1964), Anja Rideout, Dalene Swanson (Staff 1987-1996), and Frans Kooy (1968). Back, left to right Robert Murray (1968), Tim Rideout (1978), Sally Bowie, and David Bowie (1985).

The following were in contact but unable to attend: Calum Wehmeyer  (2017, and the newest member of the Scotland Branch)Robert Hollingdale (1956), Craig Eriksen (1971), and Peredur Williams (1962).

With best wishes

Robert Murray"
