Keggie Carew’s father was once known as “Lawrence of Burma” and “the Mad Irishman,” and in her new book, Dadland, we find out why:

Tom Carew was part of the Jedburghs, an elite British unit established during World War II. Keggie had heard stories about her father’s war years, but she was never sure how much to believe until she went to a Jedburgh reunion with him. There, she learned that they were trained in everything from setting mines and neutralizing booby traps to silent killing and night parachuting.

The Border Abbeys-Jedburgh (Gedeworth), Kelso, Dryburgh and Melrose, three of which were founded by David I during the twelfth century, the exception being Dryburgh, which was founded by the Constable of Scotland, Hugh de Moreville. 

I will hopefully be able to feature these abbeys, or the surrounding area, in posts soon, as soon as I finish the long overdue Bannockburn stuff (I’m doing it, I swear, it just takes a while).
