Interesting trivia

I have just learned (while searching the Web) that the pilot of the current incarnation of MacRobert's Reply is Flight Lieutenant Colin McGregor, who has a brother named Ewan. Apparently Ewan is an actor who has appeared in a few films (Star Wars Episodes 1 & 2, Trainspotting, etc.)

I'm not sure if this is going to work, but I found a picture of the first MacRobert's Reply at http://www.xs4all.nl/~tropics/mac.gif

Do you have a connection to the MacRoberts family, or is it just an interest of yours?? It is all very fascinating. I love learning these little tidbits of history they don't teach you in school!!

My only interest is that it is part of the local history of my home. I wrote the original piece on that basis and then I decided to search the internet for some more background material. When I found something interesting (to me) I posted it here.

Neil, very, very interesting. I was growing up during the period of these hostorical stories. Recall a couple from my limited storehouse, that may have some interest, but they are not of your locality. Not sure if I should start another thread, for they fall within the same criteria as your own. So will await your invite, before posting them. cheers

I can't wait to find out where my family is from originally, but for not, I'm hoping to learn more about the MacNichol clan and the area from where the Clan chief is from...Portree and Scorrybreac. Any good stuff from there, or a website that might be of interest?? It's what I love about Scotland...it's so steeped in history, there's stories about everyplace you go. You are so lucky!!!

Have a wonderful day!
Staygold
