Princess Anne

spent 15 minutes at the Caledonian MacBrayne Ltd naming ceremony of “Clansman” talking to the artist and suggested that he should be encouraged to paint more Hebrides scenes.
A result was 2 further commissions from Calmac.

 Follow the example of Captain J. A. B. Simkins, managing director of Caledonian MacBrayne (Calmac) who had read a 3/4 page about my paintings published by Lloyds List International so phone called me.
