Printed email from Archie Johnstone in response to an article about second sight on Tiree, 2015.
Extract: “My father’s mother was a great believer of 2nd sight. In 1916, he awoke and said to his mother that her brother Ian [John] was dead. She immediately went into mourning. Eight weeks later it was confirmed that he had been killed in action. The family home was no. 6 in Upper Vaul. Father was born in 1899 … His mother was Mary Flora Mackinnon and she married Thomas Johnstone and lived in Chapelhall. They had 4 children: Catherine Tommy Archie and Maxwell.”
Two pages of transcribed verses, handwritten in 1918-1919 by GBR, John Gillies, Cornaigbeg, and “an old friend”. Found in Donald Brown’s house at Vaul.
