Alf Smart has sent me an e-mail about his grandfather. Alf is Scottish and in particular from Dundee – he is a supporter of Dundee FC.
He recently looked on the Dundee club website and found an article about his grandfather (Willie Thomson) who had played football for Dundee (and also for Bolton Wanderers). And, perhaps more significantly, he had played for Scotland. Just once – in March 1896 against Wales. Scotland won the match 4-0.
Alf tells me that his grandfather was killed during the First World War and therefore he never knew him.
Have any other of our members got relatives who have accomplished something a bit special ?
