A Sunday afternoon dare in 1939

Hamish tells the Gurn:

"Attached is a photograph of a very dear friend dressed in the uniform of a member of the Nairn Pipe Band.

I recall that it was taken in King Street at the end of Wilson Street in 1939.

One Sunday afternoon my Pal, who played the pipes in the Band, and I challenged her to wear the uniform and walk along High Street. She accepted the challenge and walked, unaccompanied , as far as Morganti's on the Brae.

After the war our lives separated and 'went their own way' but we never lost touch and still corresponded regularly"
