|Feb. 2016 Ian MacKenzie-Cardy, Age 63, Javea, Spain.
I left Glasgow at the age of twelve and moved to London.I am proud of
my roots and deliberately kept my accent at school and at work as a
para medic and a police officer.( I did of course modify it a little so
I could be understood ).
My wife is of Scottish/English and Indian
origin, her first visit to Scotland was for our honeymoon in 1979....she
loved the country, our unique city and the people . If we were not both
athritic old farts we would have retired to Scotland. However we have to
settle for Spain....but we are active members of the Javea Caledonians.

No 7 is my uncle ( now deceased) Tommy Cardy ) there are also two
pictures of Queen Mary street school wich show my older sister Rita and
my younger sister Morag...a great site.
