James Hutchison’s grave
James Hutchison’s grave marker detail

A message from his grandson’s wife tells us that James was a donkey man on a ship, and was born in Leith, Edinburgh. (A donkey man looked after the donkey engine – one that would provide auxiliary power for use on board for things like winches rather than the main propulsion engine)

The photograph below shows James Hutchison in the mid 1920s with his wife Isabella, who died ten years before him, and their children David (the eldest son),  John (‘Jackie’), Helen, and Evelyn. Another daughter, Isobel, also pictured below, was born on 20 September 1932.
