Only one Union flag is to be seen fly­ing on Gigha

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, In a re­cent edi­tion of the Courier, I took par­tic­u­lar heed to a let­ter from Alas­tair Red­man, Port­na­haven, Is­lay, stat­ing that on a visit to Gigha he was heart­ened by the num­ber of so-called Union flags.

Well, in the past few weeks, I have dis­cov­ered but one. It is on a flag­pole next to Gigha Ho­tel. It is one of three flags; the oth­ers be­ing the Isle of Gigha Her­itage Trust flag and the Saltire, re­mind­ing us of our pa­tron saint.

Is it pos­si­ble that, since Mr Red­man’s visit, an east­erly gale has blown all the other Union flags over to Is­lay, where there is per­haps a short­age?

Do not for­get, Mr Red­man, thanks to the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, eye tests are free. John Martin, Gri­anan, Isle of Gigha.
