At the same time as Petty Officer George Samson’s Victoria Cross commemorative plaque was unveiled in Carnoustie, a similar ceremony was taking place in Bermuda. Depute Lord Lieutenant Dr Sandy McKendrick and his wife were at Samson’s graveside in St George’s Military Cemetery presenting a plaque.

Our picture shows RBLS Carnoustie branch chair Lindsay Martin (left) handing over the plaque prior to their trip. See Page Five for the main event.
