Alan Johnston, who celebrated his 100th birthday in March, died yesterday (Saturday).
Alan was President of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club in 1974-75. He was presented with honorary membership of the Royal Club by Her Majesty The Queen at the official opening of Curl Aberdeen in 2005.I took the photo below of him some eight years ago when he showed me his collection of curling memorabilia in a special room in his Aberdeen home. That was a great day, happy memories. Many in the curling world will remember him fondly, as I do.
