Unfortunately I need to let you know of the deaths of two former members, Stan Edmond and Ken MacRae, both of whom were highly respected in the racing world.

Stan Edmond was a long-standing member of the Club until he resigned earlier this year. He started his marshalling days at Ingliston and more recently could normally be seen manning the post at the bottom of Duffus at Knockhill. His funeral is on Monday 22 November at Mortonhall Crematorium, Edinburgh, EH10 6PB, at 12 noon.

A retired Clerk of the Course, Ken MacRae was also a member of the Club for several years. Prior to getting his ‘ticket’ he was the Chief Observer for SMRC – a post that he passed to Mike Gascoigne. Ken's funeral is on Monday 15 November at Falkirk Crematorium, FK2 7YJ at 15:15hrs. Donations in his memory can be made to Scottish Rail Preservation Society c/o 4 Baberton Mains Avenue, Edinburgh EH14 3EQ.
