Sir Thomas Smith Booklet
Since the booklet launch a few weeks ago, I have sent quite a few booklets out to folk who e-mailed me seeking the booklets.
Well, you never know who is reading the booklet - I received an e-mail from David Anderson MVO, MBE who had sent a couple of booklets to Garter King of Arms - Peter Gwynn-Jones Esq. who recently took part in the State Opening of Parliament, he in turn gave a copy to Alaister Bruce - yes, direct descendant of Robert the Bruce 'King of Scots'.
Alaister Bruce subsequently e-mailed David, thanking him for the booklet which he described as 'fascinating' and that he 'thoroughly enjoyed reading it'. Alaister Bruce also intimated that he would be happy to help in any further projects that may incorporate his ancestors.
What a revelation. We at Loughries are thrilled about this, however all the accolades should be afforded to Mark Thompson the man responsible for the booklet.
