A Message from The Queen

A MESSAGE from The Queen signalled the beginning of a special celebration for one Stranraer couple this week.

For Alec and Anne Clark, of the town's Lochinch Place, received a card from Her Royal Highness to mark their Diamond Wedding anniversary which they celebrated yesterday (Wednesday).

Mr Clark, a former soldier and retired restaurant manager, met his wife-to-be at a village dance in Castle Kennedy in 1942 as he served in the Pioneer Corps in South-West Scotland. They married at Sheuchan Church, Stranraer, on 23rd April, 1943.

The couple then moved to London and worked together at the imaginatively-named Eccentric Club restaurant where, amongst others, they had the privilege of dining Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh.

On retiring from the catering business the couple moved back to Stranraer.

They have one son, Kenneth, who works as a regional organiser for the Labour Party in London.
