"In loving memory of my fiance, J.T. Wesley Smith, 1930 - 1972, Plane crash at sea, Our love is forever, A loving son & father". A plaque seen on the Iona Beach Jetty led to research into two American pilots.
"These trees were planted in memory of Alison Gourdie who loved this place and the outdoor life." A memorial stone found at a remote Scottish cottage intrigued me, so I did a bit of research and discovered a remarkable woman, whose life was dramatically cut short.
One of my non-drawing hobbies is genealogy – with the aim of building up a family tree for my daughter. I’ve also done some research about other people – mainly when I find a plaque or sign that intrigues me, but isn’t easily found on Google.
In order to help anyone else who may be looking, I’ve added this wee section to my website.
