Thanks to Bonzo we should perhaps add General EDMUND HENRY HYNMAN ALLENBY, Inspector General of Cavalry, who inspected the Queen's Own Royal Glasgow Yeomanry at their Mill Farm, Ardrossan, camp on 25 July 1911.

General Allenby subsequently became T. E. Lawrence's commanding officer.

He was famously portrayed in the film, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, by Jack Hawkins.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

Most famous person I've met, (kind of) was BobHope.
Me the wife and dog, went to the Bob Hope pro am at Turnberry many years ago.
We were out on the course when Gary Player came marching up to us waving his club shouting, get that dog of this course. (I've never liked him since)
So we went off the course to the road side and were standing there with no one near us.
We could hear a pipe band approaching, and as it passed by us there was a limousine just behind it
as it was passing us the rear window went down and Bob Hope stuck his head out and looked directly at us and said
“ This aint my regular band”
Idiot - seeks village.
