Recent Meeting

Thursday 16th May
Duncan McNab “Policing the Forth”

Duncan McNab

Another very interesting and entertaining talk. Duncan breifly sumarised his career, starting from joining the Royal Navy to his retirement after 17 years as a policeman on the river Forth. He described some of the most interesting events, ranging from escorting Trident nuclear submarines and the Royal Yacht Britannia, to saving a whale, as well as giving an insight of the more routine aspects of the work, both in beautiful weather and fierce storms. Along the way we learned much of the history of each of the islands in the Forth, and of the bridges including the Kincardine swing bridge. A truely memorable evening.
