To avoid con­fu­sion

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - COMMENT -

“I re­sponded to a pho­to­graph that was in the Craigie col­umn on April 3,” says Lil­ian McBean of In­ver­gowrie. “I said that the lady stand­ing sec­ond from the left was my granny.

“What I meant to say was that the lady sec­ond from the right was my granny. She was the tall lady stand­ing be­tween Robert Wil­son and Jack Cooper. I apol­o­gise for any con­fu­sion this may have caused.

“My granny’s name was He­len Hous­ton and she was an avid fol­lower of The Gie Gor­dons Dance Band and The White Heather Club.”

“My great-grandad, Samuel Gil­lies, two of my great-un­cles, John and Alex, and four other crew mem­bers died when the fish­ing boat, Brothers, was lost on March 30 1886.”

“Some of the trees along the River Tay in Dunkeld are show­ing some colour de­spite all the freez­ing winds lately,” says the Dundee reader who sent in this pho­to­graph.
