Fascinating to me Jenny – that . . . ~!~
I should be speaking with the Author’s daughter who featured my old Uncle in his book. It is a connected World . . .
Hi Barbara - Enjoy!
Yes 'English' as they are descended from a Monck trooper (who could be
from anywhere) and the Dundee woman, Elspet Renkyne, also of course
Fascinating that you as a relative are in Bermuda.

- I was talking recently to a sister-in-law who well remembers Busters bought from a stall in the Overgate. I don't - I do remember, though, a very excellent chip shop in the Overgate, where we bought pudding suppers on the way back to the High School from choir practice for the Christmas concert in St Mary's!

I've never hear of "Busters"The problem with the taste of anything from MOST fish and chip shops nowadays, is the deep-frying in anything but lard.However unhealthy, that was the best taste, whether you bought from The Deep Sea in the Nethergate or from the West End, King Street, Broughty Ferry.Does anyone remember "Polie Joe" who rant The Malta, at the corner of King Street and Grey Street? He used to repair cycles and radios but never smiled.
