Is that the Bill Cooper fae Russland who was in the war? And was he not a commando, or did he spend some time as a prisoner? I seem to remember you saying something about him Jim?
It is good to remember what these men did for our freedom.

Hi John, that would be Willie [standing next to Colin]. He was not a commando or a prisoner but spent a while in the Far East during the war fighting the Japs. He said that the day he came back to Orkney he saw his sister on Broad Street and gave her a shout, she turned and ran, she had no idea who this strange old man was.
