Whur grandfather was at the herring fishing in Stronsay and he said all carts were numbered by law and the farm name was stencilled on the "breest o the kert". I can mind him saying "Whitehall" had a high number o kerts- might hid been as high as 30 or am I imagining that number??.
Any comment on this Bill?. Can you get the evidence?
