BRAEMAR TIM­BER

Evergreen - - News -

MADAM: You pub­lished a photo of the In­ver­cauld Arms Ho­tel in Braemar (“The Past in Colour”, Sum­mer 2016). In the spring of 1945 I re­turned to the UK from Italy. We were sup­posed to go to an ex- Cana­dian lum­ber­jacks’ camp near Braemar, but be­cause of some hold up we couldn’t go there and spent a while in the ho­tel. I re­mem­ber we were well looked af­ter by the lo­cals. My mate and I who were both car­pen­ters in work­ing life ob­tained some work with a lo­cal builder. — JOE BEECHEY, FARINGDON, OX­FORD­SHIRE.
