Thank you for your reply Tom,it was nice to hear from someone who used to live in the village. Mouse and Jim McLaughain were the same age, Mouse would have been 67 now. Mouse and Jim were both in Korea at the same time, both were in the army, Hugh also served in Korea in the Royal Navy, John McCallum lives in Barhill, I think he is still alive. I remember Allan McLeod I think he was in the Royal Navy also, his father was the village policeman. I knew william (Billy Ballantyne) and Sandy Parker, Sandy died aged 49, Allan (Nally Rennie) was a great mate to Mouse. Sandy Parkers brother George is still living in the village. My dad was 80 when he died and my mother was 85.
I would love to meet you in the village sometime in the future, I will try and get Margaret and some of the others you mentioned in your letter to be there. let me know in plenty of time when you plan to come. In the mean time I will try to find out where the others live and tell them about you. I think Margaret must know you she has a great memory I will give them this site details and she can contact you direct.This is our e-mail address so that you can contact us direct:
I worked for Kodak for 26 years and took early retirement in September this year, My wife Nuala has her own communications company and I now work for her.
bye for now
John Linden
