Less well-known is his membership of another important organisation, the McCrae’s Battalion Trust. Ian was one of the founding trustees back in 2007 and in spite of his commitments on Edinburgh Council and at Westminster, he has continued to work away in the background, lending his support, influence and advice. As noted elsewhere on this site, he played a hugely important part MBT’s efforts to frustrate the proposed re-siting of the Heart of Midlothian War Memorial.

Well done, Ian!
