(L-R): Mike, Ian and Hugh.
Mike writes (August 2011) :
"Here's a photo I took a few weeks ago of Hugh McVey, Ian Scott and myself
on the beach at Musselburgh near Edinburgh. I invited Ian and Julia and Hugh
and Sandra to come and visit us for dinner when we were up there recently.
As you know, Hugh was a peer of ours at St. Columba’s, The Priory
and Blacklion then he'd disappeared from view for decades.
Pat McHale managed to make e-mail contact
with him and suggested that I follow up with him.
We enjoyed a wonderful informal get-together over dinner and then lunch the
next day. You will see on this picture that the sky over Edinburgh is looking
quite threatening and sure enough, a few minutes later it almost
drowned us all in a torrent of water — we were soaked through and
had to jog almost a mile to find some shelter!
As Hugh has been “invisible” to all his ex-colleagues
for so long I thought it might be helpful to all to be able
to recognise him if they meet him in the Glasgow area."
