Postcard of the week - Carnwath

Many a Sunday afternoon was spent with my Dad dragging me off to Carnwath, where it seemed everyone was a cousin, descended from my Great Great Uncle Archibald Hamilton who moved there in the mid 1800's. I made a trip back there a couple of years ago to have a look around - you can see some pictures here - http://s1.zetaboards.com/Mr_H_Family_Album/topic/3226518/ - but here's a postcard of the kirk taken about 60 years ago.

Thirty two years ago today, but it still feels like yesterday. RIP, Dad.

Here he is, with a young Mr H on a glamourous caravan holiday in sunny Kinghorn.

My Great Uncle, William Muir, was working as a labourer when he enlisted in the reserves of the Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders in 1907. He must have liked it / hated his job, because he became a full-time soldier in 1911, signing up for 12 years in the Royal Scots. Details here.

The old ones speak of winter, the young ones praise the sun - check out the Sacred Heart over here on Facebook. It's the Sacred Heart Church, Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, where my Grandparents were married.

There's a new picture of my Dad, Alexander Walker Hamilton, as a young man over here - Dad.
