I travelled with Albert when the ferry went to Invergordon and back in the early sixties with my mum and dad. Dad worked at the Mains with Duncan Macpherson before moving to Muirhead farm> He did tell me the story about Albert being awarded the BEM but I can't remember what for. I believe Goodie and Abu were lifeboat men, not sure about Ali Maclean. Could somebody remind me please. John Mackenzie
