The Old Legion Club was situated next to where the Fire Station is today, my dad and mum Margaret and Charlie Millar lived behind the Legion Club and my brother Eoin's first home was there.

This was the Kirkwall & St Ola Community Centre after it was a Toc H. My father, Eric Windwick, was the caretaker. The leantoo
was our kitchen. The chimney stack belonged to our living room fire.
Happy days!
