Arbroath Rotary Club was treated to an excellent presentation on the history of ‘Oor Wullie’ at their meeting last week.

Sunday Post features editor Steve Finan enlightened Rotarians on the history of the paper and the evolution of news. The Sunday Post was started in 1914 to provide positive news of the Great War and played an equally important part in the Second World War. Many of its columns have become part of Scotland’s culture, such as The Honest Truth, The Doc and comic strips such as ‘The Broons’ and ‘Oor Wullie’.

Retired journalist Ian Lamb gave thanks to Steve Finan on behalf of the club.
