1946 - 1992
Jim, or as he was affectionately known to a wide
circle of friends "The Bandit" compiled a collection of poems
over a twenty year period, mostly made up for reciting at Burns Nights
in local halls where he was in great demand, and appreciated by all who
heard him. His sense of humour shines from each poem and his
mastery of the Caithness dialect will
bring tears to the eyes of many an exile from our county.
