We’ve had another response to the article on the Mclean Hall, this time from Alex McEwen:
Congratulations on your 60th Anniversary. I remember the day 60 years ago when I had to present the flowers to (???) after the opening ceremony. My father was hall keeper for the first 25 years and my brother and I used to help clean the hall after events. I recognise many of the people in the photo, both my grandfathers( Bill Deuchar and Alex McEwen). My auntie and uncle Christine and Josef Hapka , Jim Fleming (worked Ben Lawers farm), George Ballingall (Auchtar), Jack Fisher (Cauldermore), David Campbell (Balnearn) , Elizabeth and Janet Robertson from Lawers and all the others identified by Alistair Barnett.
Enjoy your day
Alex McEwen (ex Lawers View)
Many thanks, Alex! You made the presentation to Mrs Duffus – and here you are doing it!
The photo is on the wall in the Hall, but I think I’m spotting a name check that needs to be corrected!
