Take the links below to see what’s on offer. Not much so far, but you never know what might turn up…
Some old photographs of Haddington Rifle Club have been sent in by the organiser of the ‘Lost Haddington’ Facebook page, and I thought they might be worth sharing. Some of our more mature readers might know some of the names at least, and your site administrator is not ashamed to say that he actually knew some of those in the newest photo (15-odd years later, he hastens to add).
