Re: Tam The Gun

Dedicated to the man who used to fire "the one o’clock gun" every day from Edinburgh Castle! Could take your knees from under you if you happened to be shopping on Princes St!

Re: Tam The Gun

Tam used to drink in Sandy Bells during the eighties.

Apparently, tourists would often ask him what time the "One O’Clock Gun " was fired?
