I have to thank the following:
- Jack Mainland, editor of FPNews, the annual magazine for, and about, Stewarts Melville former pupils, for persuading me to think about, and document these anecdotes.
- Brian Hayes, of Leisure and Culture Dundee, (a registered charity) working in partnership with Dundee City Council, for sorting out IT issues associated with preparing a website.
Without their enthusiasm and assistance, this early part of my life would not have been written…
