Name: Alastair Kidd
DOB: 1961
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.

Hi Alastair .. read your comments and your great uncle Bill Reid rang a bell . I'm not being disrespectful but did he have quite a few marks on his face and neck .. possibly due to the change of the body in his youth .. he was an excellent art teacher and I hadn't thought of him in years lol .. he had a lot of patience especially with my wild class .. anyway I hope alls well with you and keep well !
