Anniversary joy for Dumfries ex-provost Ken and wife Molly

60th wedding anniversary

It was diamond smiles from the Peoples Provost Ken Cameron OBE and his wife, Molly, on Wednesday as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

Dumfriesshire Lord Lieutenant, Fiona Armstrong, presented a royal message of congratulations from the queen.

It was diamond smiles from the ‘People’s Provost’ Ken Cameron OBE and wife Molly on Wednesday as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

Dumfriesshire Lord Lieutenant Fiona Armstrong presented a message of congratulations from the Queen at their Ardwall Road home in Dumfries.

Ken, 85, was a Dumfries councillor for 42 years and provost for 12.

Molly, aged 84, hails from Lochfoot and attended Kircudbright Academy, while Ken spent his early childhood in Clarencefield and Mouswald
before his family settled in Dumfries where he was a pupil at Loreburn Primary and Dumfries High.

They met at a dance in Southwick and were married at Mouswald Church on September 12, 1958.

During his National Service of over two years, Ken joined the King’s Own Scottish Borderers and,
after training in Edinburgh, was transferred to infantry battalion the Scottish Cameronians and saw action in Malaya.

On his return, he joined the fire service in Dumfries and gave 30 years of service.

Molly was assistant manger at Simpson’s shoe shop near Burns Statue and then manager for 16 years at Thornton’s on the High Street.
 
They have three children, Lynda, Elaine and Kenneth, and four grandchildren and are planning a family holiday later this year to celebrate their anniversary.

Ken is best known for his dedication as an independent councillor, returned to office by voters five times.

He served on many committees over the years, including chairman of the police committee, and represented the region at events in the UK and abroad.

He is a honorary president of Dumfries Guid Nychburris; served on Locharbiggs and Heathhall Community Councils;
was chairman of the Children’s 1st Dumfries Action Group for 20 years; first chairman of the Locharbriggs Community Centre –
among many other achievements and community service.

As well as being a referee in the amateur football leagues in the region, Ken was also a SFA referee and linesman during the 1970s and 80s.
He was one of the first SFA refs to get a European game and says one of the highlights was refeering a Queen of the South v Preston North End match,
as well as being linesman at many Rangers and Celtic games.

I had forgotten A C Harris, but seeing his name instantly created an association with the village of Liff, just outside Dundee, in match reports.

I recall that during his time as a Scottish League referee A D Fleming was listed as coming from Banknock, which would appear to be between Kilsyth and Denny.

AD Fleming, (Drew Fleming) was originally from Banknock but due to his work with the Civil Service also lived for periods of time in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Sadly Drew recently passed away and his funeral took place yesterday.

Are you the same Scottish Ref that used to post so enjoyably on the old site? If so, welcome back
 If not, welcome anyway!

The same Scottish Ref from the old site.  It’s good to be back!

Hi Stepan

Thanks for posting the linesmen details.

I'm intrigued to know where you find the details from.  I know programmes are a great source but doubt they were issued for some of the matches concerned. Newspapers are another good source but there are only a few free ones on line with archives to help.  Do you have access to a local newspaper library with a large international section?  Or do you have a large network of contacts that assist you? Please could you enlighten us?

Hi Ted.
I have been working with assistants referees in European Cup matches 1955 - 91 for about 30 years. The main material is obtained from the programs for matches, newspaper reports, club magazines, photos and by correspondence with colleagues from other countries. Now I have about 60%, some seasons and more.
