Dalkeith couple celebrate 70 years of wedded bliss

Duncan and Meg Forrest celebrated their recent 70th wedding anniversary at Archview Lodge Care Home in Dalkeith.

Meg (92) and Duncan (91) met in their early teens through her brother Tush, who was a cycling pal of Duncan’s.

Duncan was born and bred in Newtongrange, while Meg, from Tarbrax in West Lothian, moved to Newtongrange with her family when she was six.

Duncan worked as a miner in the local pits from the age of 14 until he reached 60., while Meg left school at 13 to look after the house when her mother died, and later worked as a bus conductress during the war.
