You ken I never knew "Jock o The Ha" was a Corrigall until he was the topic o conversation on this site a peedie while ago. I was under the thought he was a Johnston he was aye kent as jist "Jock O The Ha" .

Thought I would put Jock in Cyber Space Jimmy because someone was asking on here about Corrigall's but I can't find their post now.
