About Me

I lived at Harrietsfield near Ancrum between 1949 and 1962.   I attended JGS from 1949 - 1953 then Hawick High for a year before starting my first job at George Hogg & Sons Ltd which I worked for eight years before emigrating to Australia in 1962.

I have a brother Donald who still lives at Harrietsfield.   I have one son but six stepchildren and 31 grandchildren, and we're losing count of the great grandchildren.   Since acquiring a computer I have been able to keep in touch with family and friends in Scotland but so far, only one person I went to school with in Jedburgh!   I think most of them must have moved!!

About Me

I am an ardent supporter of Our Jethart Festival and most other border celebrations for that matter. I have followed the festival for most of my 65 years, on foot, bicycle and by car although never on a horse.(too feart).  I have to say that thanks to the weather which in turn brought out the huge crowds i think helped make the 2010 festival one of the best ever. The principles were a credit, not only to their town but to their families and friends and carried out their duties to the highest order setting standards for the youth of to-day to emulate. The general comments from other towns seemed to echo these sentiments also.Thank you all for a super time. Enjoy the winter as we look forward with keen anticipation to next year.
