Craigie Past and Present

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT - By Fraser El­der

1. In Euro­pean com­pe­ti­tion, Dundee United first faced English op­po­si­tion in 1969. Who were their op­po­nents?

2. In Perthshire where is Scot­land’s one and only tea plan­ta­tion sit­u­ated?

3. In the post-war years which hus­band and wife duo head­lined sea­sonal sum­mer shows in Perth The­atre?

4. One of Kir­riemuir’s twin towns is known as Ker­rimuir. Where is it to be found ge­o­graph­i­cally?

5. Which no­table Royal presided at the Black Watch Home­com­ing pa­rade in For­far in 2012?

This de­light­ful pic­ture of for­mer Courier na­ture writer and artist Colin Gib­son in his stu­dio was sent in by re­tired Angus jour­nal­ist Gor­don Cook, who in­ter­viewed him in 1998. Gor­don says: “Colin was one of the most ami­able gen­tle­men I ever met, and the hour or so I spent in his com­pany re­mains a most plea­sur­able mem­ory.”
