Decades ago there had been a saying that people form the eastern part of Germany are living behind the moon. Far from that being true - maybe Madiosi has a second residence there?
One more cheerful point about Lockerbie, it's in Armstrong country -
Neil Armstrong's ancestors were from Langholm, the next town to the east,
he was made a Freeman of the Burgh when he visited.

Yes, I was just a kid, but of course the whole of our region was shaken to the core, and it's still very much part of local memory.
I worked for 4 years at Syracuse University and knew many students who did their semester abroad in England. Although it was several years after I left Syracuse, nearly 40 returning SU students were on that flight. So very sad...

In reality, SS Politician, off Eriskay. But Compton Mackenzie used those names in Whisky Galore

Indeed. One of my favorite comic movies of all time. Of course, Compton, though being a fanatical Scots nationalist did manage to write on a wide range of topics from Monarch of the Glen to Lesbians on Capri!
