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
