One Response to 1968

  1. Emma Mugridge says:

    The Freemen, who appeared on October 26, comprised Brian Mugridge (my father), his brother Stuart and Alf Grainger. Sadly, Stuart was the last and passed away on 6 October 2010. It would be great if there is anyone who could share their memories of the group, who were incredibly fond of Scotland, as this will be added to our family tree archive.

    Many thanks,

    Emma Mugridge
