Gordon & Alice Sutherland
Canada
N/A Hello, Gordon (born 1944) and Alice (born 1945) Sutherland (nee Deviney)here. Me from 1034 Maryhill Road (next to the STAR picture house) and Alice from 13 Mingulay Street in the Milton. I went to Shakespear Street School and then on to North Kelvinside. Alice went to St. Augustines. I was also a member of the 96 Glasgow Boy Scouts but quit because I had to walk past all the neds at the top of Oran Street, shouting at me because I was wearing my kilt and Mounty hat. After we got married we lived at 66 Viewmount Drive. We both worked at L.Sterne & Company on the street behind the SEAMORE and got married in the Old Kirk in St. Monans, Fife in 1965. We love the Fife coast and often dream about retiring there someday. We left Scotland with two babies in 1968 and now that we have two Grand kids of our own realize how our folks must have felt. I became a Police Officer in Toronto for over 27 years and retired 3 years ago. Two of our children followed in my footstept and became Police Officers and I am now working for an insurance company. We would both love to hear from any old friends who recognize us.
This is a great site and we have spent lots of time reminiscing over some of the stories - and told other ex-patriots about it.
Yours Aye, Gordon & Alice Sutherland
(Many thanks for the kind comments - ED)
