Duncan McMillan was Provost of Campbeltown from 1965 – 1968 . The year before he became provost he stood as Labour candidate for Argyll. During his election campaign he visited the Argyll Colliery, Machrihanish.
His son, Hamish, has kindly let us have access to some of Duncan’s photos, a couple of which are published here and these document Duncan’s visit to Argyll Colliery in 1964.
At the first of the drop-in TRTD archive sessions at Campbeltown Library we showed the photo below to the participants, some of them former miners, and they were able to name all, bar one, of the miners in the this photo:
We haven’t identified the others in the above photo yet but if we have any luck with this we will update the article. If you can help please contact us.
