The face and body are both facing towards the viewer and this is referred to in heraldry as 'affront'.A knight errant, if up to no good (and perhaps ashamed of his behaviour) would not want to be identified, so he would cover the crest on his shield with a black cloth - black affront - hence the Scottish phrase meaning 'embarrassed'. Maybe it was the wartime rations that left us hungry.Very few houses had central heating, so the living room was often the only warm room in the home in winter.With no TV set, furniture would be organised around the fireplace, as the centerpiece of the room, and, in the evening, the family would gather round to read or listen to the radio.Lizzie Lawson, was born in 1881 in Dundee, in Thom Place. Five years later, they lived in Glasgow, in Cathcart less than a mile from Hampden, Scotland's National Football Stadium.Sadly, Thomas died there at the age of 25, from acute appendicitis - Gran was pregnant with her third child and she returned to Dundee.
Medically the term Erythema ab igne,' or 'Toasted skin syndrome' is used, but the common term for it, in Dundee at any rate, is 'corned beef legs'.
Post war in Dundee, Jannette Nicoll and I used to go for long walks at weekends. Denholm is a village, population today around 600, located between Jedburgh and Hawick in the Scottish Borders region.
A favourite was out round the Dighty burn and up the hill behind Balmydown Farm I taught Jannette how to deal with a neep one day only to get home and find that father had been watching us through his binoculars. It lies in the valley of the River Teviot, about halfway between the towns of Hawick and Jedburgh.
Four years later Lizzie married my grandfather, Frank Ryan.
She had six more children, though two were girl twins who died at birth in 1912.
