In a very warm and humid Aberdeen a group met at the Wallace Statue for our annual commemoration to Sir William Wallace.
Jim Singer opened the proceedings as the torches burned round the foot of the statue, Brian Johnson read out the prayer first in Latin then in English. As the ceremony unfolded there were many passers by that joined the rest of the group. Yet again David Ross gave a speech from the heart of true patriotism, his words were warmly received.
Who else but Ted Christopher and his marvellous song of I'm coming Home managed to attract even more passers by, as usual he sang the song from his Scottish heart.
The wreath was then laid by Crann Tara before Brian said the Lords Prayer and Ted finished off with what else but Scots Wha Hae.
We all then moved to the Rusty Nail where we were entertained by the formidable Ted Christopher. It was a great venue and Ted raised the roof with his marvellous repetoire.
Everyone enjoyed the fantastic evening although it was hard to find the stragglers for the bus back down to Stonehaven.
