I hadn't made the connection with your surname, Glen, but I have
recently been dealing with Dr Walford Bodie's name in the form of his
and his family's Memorial Inscriptions in Doune Kirkyard, Macduff. You
are probably familiar with the impressive set of monuments in the family
enclosure, but I can now tell you that the MIs for Doune should be
published in the not-too-distant future.
