Home Guard


I remember seeing a German pilot being taken in charge by the home guard at Cramond, after bailing out of his Junkers in 1942.

Liz Mackay

"I was Liz Mackay.  I lived in Cramond up until 1976.  I went to Cramond Primary and then Bellevue Secondary.  Mum, Chris, was brought up in Gilmerton, then moved to Cramond.  She died a few years ago.  Dad, Robert still lives at Cramond.

Does anyone remember me or my mum and dad?   I'd love to hear from anyone."

Message for Liz


Hi Liz:  I recently received a message from Alan Whyte who would like to contact you.  He tells me that he went to Cramond Primary School in 1976 and stayed in Cramond Park until he was age 21.  He also sent me copies of class photos taken at Cramond Primary School in 1975 and 1977.

Can you please send me an email so that I can discover your email address again  and pass it on to Alan?   

Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs:  August 10, 2009.
