The next meeting will feature a talk by Will Collin and Gordon Easingwood on T Wilson Fish. Will Collin has sent the following information:
The subject of the next talk is Thomas Wilson Fish, who lived in his later years with three of his sisters in ‘Kirklands’ at the top of Station Road, Dunbar. All were unmarried. T Wilson Fish JP died on 9 April 1943, aged 85, and his obituary in ‘The Courier’ listed just some of the public offices he held at the time of his death. They included chairman of the Dunbar and Skateraw branch of the RNLI, to be covered by DDHS chairman Gordon.
The ‘Courier’ obituary finished by saying that Mr Fish was “a stalwart, so simple, so sincere and so unobtrusively generous – how generous it is questionable if anyone knew.” Yet so little is generally known about him. The talk will attempt to trace what was a very full life.
The talk takes place in the Town House, Dunbar at 7.30pm on 13th February 2024 – doors open at 7pm. Please try to arrive by 7.25 at the latest.
