Jail Time

The Scots Magazine - - Mailbox -

I was in­ter­ested to read Kenny Ma­caskill’s ar­ti­cle on Peter­head Prison as my late mother’s un­cle An­drew Veitch was an of­fi­cer there. He had been a sol­dier in The Black Watch and when the Boer War broke out he was re­called to serve with the reg­i­ment. How­ever, on the way to South Africa he caught ap­pen­dici­tis and was put ashore at Malta to have an op­er­a­tion. He was then sent back to Fort George un­til the war ended be­fore re­turn­ing to be­ing a prison of­fi­cer at Peter­head. Patrick W. An­der­son, Letham.
