Recollections

Thank you to John Clark who saw the picture at the top of this page and wrote:

Royal Engineers Club

"I am 70 now.  I lived in Great King Street with my parents until I was married in 1960.

The photo I see, with the house with the black door looks like the house we stayed in. It was the Royal Engineers Club.   My Dad was the Clubmaster of the club, and we lived in the house below.

Does anyone know if the club still exists or is it long gone?  I had many happy times with my parents and of course all the members.

Yes, John.  The Royal Engineers (Edinburgh) Club still seems to be at that address, 78 Great King Street.
