St Andrew's Day Lecture 2017

We were treated to a fascinating talk by Rev. Allan Maclean of Dochgarroch on Saturday as this year's St Andrew's Day lecture. His title was "Teaching Heraldry to an Edwardian child" and the child turned out to be Allan's own father, whose interest in heraldry was engaged by an elderly uncle who drew pictures and cartoons for the young chap to colour in and which gave him a progressive course in heraldry. It was a very touching story, beautifully illustrated and delivered.
