In short

  • Born:  Edinburgh Scotland.  Son of a wholesale fish merchant and kipper curer.  Hell of a job getting my first girlfriend?

  • " Gun Law By Hotel Chief "  This was the headline in a national newspaper in Scotland when as a victim of car vandalism I took an empty rifle and perused six drunken young men who were destroying my car.  I did not physically harm anyone, only threatened.  As a hotelier and local businessman, the court said I should have known better.  I was finned one hundred pounds sterling, and none of them were even charged.  'No I do not suffer fools gladly.'
