So that's what it is! Tried to explain this 'wreck' to my father and Malcolm Robertson (Peedie Wards) about four years ago. Treated to a long series of reminiscences about wrecks at 'Melster' and the back o Brims. Obviously didn't explain clearly enough or I'm sure they would have clicked immediately.

It was bought by my uncle 'Ikey' for the wood but proved too much for him.
