Scanned copy of a newspaper eulogy of Dr Catherine Brown (1900 – c.1985) titled ‘The doctor whose name lives on in Agyll school annals’ from (presumably) the Oban Times. Although Catherine was born in Bunessan, Mull, her Baptist minister father Alexander Brown, was originally from Mannal, Tiree, and she was “as much at home too in the Isle of Tiree”.

Union Jack flag

Well used Union Jack flag brought home by Lachie MacLean, Druimfraoich, when he left the Navy. It was last flown by the roadside on the occasion of Ian and Elizabeth Brown`s (Crossapol) wedding in 1984, when it was still the custom for island residents to fly flags on wedding days. (ON PERMANENT LOAN – to be returned to Lachie`s family on request.)
