Love let­ters

Scottish Field - - LETTERS -

I know you will be crest­fallen to learn that this Lord-Lieu­tenant of Mo­ray opens your splen­did mag­a­zine ev­ery month and goes di­rect to the sec­ond back page where he al­ways much en­joys read­ing about the rough and tum­ble of the Chief and/or be­ing a Lord-Lieu­tenant.

But this rang a real bell. I opened the Lux­ury Is­sue on the day I was due to at­tend a 60th Di­a­mond wed­ding in Burghead. Hav­ing read the amuse­ments that go on in Dum­fries-shire on th­ese oc­ca­sions I de­cided that dis­cre­tion was the bet­ter part of val­our and did not take 'The last word' with me! What a wimp.

I used all th­ese World War II postal acronyms on the back of my Valen­tine Card en­velopes dur­ing the 70’s, and def­i­nitely to my dear­est of nearly 46 years on 16th Septem­ber. How­ever, I am strug­gling to re­mem­ber what NOR­WICH was, and I was dis­ap­pointed that EGYPT was not men­tioned.

I am now set­ting off to buy a wed­ding an­niver­sary card and plan to smother it with the NAMES. What a won­der­ful col­umn from Fiona Arm­strong, and thank for a very good is­sue. I do even­tu­ally get to the Ed­i­tor's own eru­dite words, I prom­ise. Grenville S John­ston
