About this memory

Robert Williamson (left).

Robert Williamson served in the Home Guard for the duration of the war - being a butcher he was exempt from military service. The group's headquarters were at the rugby ground at Murrayfield. The family joke was that he guarded Corstorphine Hill from the Roseburn Bar!
