Re: Back to Back Hole in Ones.

Had two holes in one on the same front nine of the same course. Different holes though on different days.
All I got was my name on the " hole in one plaque" in the clubhouse. Bought my golfing buddy a beer as

Re: Personal events remembered

I remember being one of the members of the junior boys choir at the Academy in the mid 50s with Miss Scrimiger being the music teacher.

Re: Saltcoats scouts

Thanks for the info. You are correct we were run by Ronnie Fynes. We had a Rover hut on the same property as well an adventurers group was started in 1955 which met in a loft at the rear of one of the big houses on South Beach Crescent.

Re: Saltcoats scouts

When I was in the scouts they were called the 1st Ardrossan/Saltcoats scouts and met in the huts in Kilmenny Terrace. This was in the 50's . I don't believe Saltcoats had their own troop then. Do they now?

Re: Air Raid Shelter In Ardrossan Castle

ir appears to me, looking at George's bottom picture of Wallace's Larder, that it is still walled up to some extent though not with bricks. I still believe that this is the location of the air raid shelter referred to.

Re: What are you reading now?

Just finished reading "for the glory" the biography of Eric Liddell, the Scottish Olympic runner and Misssionary to China who died in a Japanese POW camp in 1945. A very inspiring read.
