Chris, As memory serves you must have lived on A-Site?

Scouse - Was that the Carbon-Monoxide from the coal Accident? I was quite young at the time but when it happened my old man came home and ripped out the Anthricite Fire we had in the living room.

Hello
I lived with my mum , dad and sister on B site until 1966. My dad was at RNAS Lossiemouth .
I have some pictures of the caravan site when it looked like a caravan site .
I have one picture taken in the club of a kids Xmas party .
I went to Fochabers school and was picked up by coach in the mornings . My dad cycled to the air base each day .
If I remember well , Innes house was further up and Leucas house further down .
My sister and I played in the stream ( burn) most days .
My mum was potato picking in the holidays and we would go on the machines with her .
I remember baby lambs etc but not too much .

I visited last year 2019 . It was bare .
I met a lady working at the dolphin ‘ sanctuary ‘, who lived on c site and she directed me . She said it was a tractor site now .
Happy times . It was lovely to see Elgin and Lossiemouth again .

My father died young , shortly after we left and went to Plymouth . Devonport. He joined the Eagle , died 6 weeks later . It was a bad time for all of us . I was 13 , my sister 9 and my mother widowed at 33 .

We lived at 45 B site . If you would like to see the pictures please get in touch .

I lived on Muirton Caravan site for a while. That is the one where the PO cook was murdered.
He was shagging a civies wife who seemingly didn't like it.
I eventually moved to the Navy site at Milltown.
Great site Great club but too far out in the sticks.

Talk of Elgin reminded me of a fairly recent experience. I was taken ashore with appendicitis to Dr Gray's hospital in Elgin more or less at the start of the NHS. Unfortunately for the rather old surgeon ,it burst as he was removing it so had to spend a rather long time under their excellent care.
Some 70 years later ,near enough to the day, i was having a check up at my local hospital by a young male Scots doctor.. He saw my complicated scar and asked me about it. He then told me he had had his appendix removed at Dr Grays a few months before when he was doing his post degree training there. They told me at Dr Grays they had preserved my appendix in formaldehyde for training purposes. If Scotland ever attains independence ,I will write to them demanding it back
