Name: Alastair Kidd
Place of birth: Arbroath RI
Current Location: Scotland
Lived in Arbroath from 1961-1963, don't remember much! Visit as often as poss - still got family in the town, as well as Carnoustie, Broughty, Dundee and Kirrie.
Went to PE college in south of England and met Fraser Cargill from the town, and Carol Gair from London, whose Grandad was in my Grandad's class in primary school! Dad also Alastair Kidd - he married Elspeth Nicoll from Carnoustie. Uncle Ron Kidd still lives in town. Great Uncle Bill Reid taught art at High School before moving on to Hospitalfield
Grandad was Arch Kidd grocer and butcher.
