Hi from One Eyed Cat,
We had a very rare honor yesterday at our Brechin Legion gig!
As it turns out, earlier in the day, one of the members attended a special ceremony to receive a Queen's Jubilee medal and then he came out to the legion, part way through our set.
His name is Bobby Clayton and he served during the second world war in Hong Kong. As it turns out, he was captured when the Japanese overran the island and spent several years in a Japanese prison camp. These camps are known as being some of the most brutal in history and those who survived are true heros! We were able to meet Bobby and indeed have posted a picture showing off his many medals and his new Queen's Jubilee medal.
We also had a really great gig out there and have been asked to play at another of their functions on July 21st.
In the meantime, we play West 22 this Saturday and Arthur Canada Day celebrations on July 1st! Hope to see you out at one of our gigs!
Til next time,
