Service crews always like to stake their claim on the best patch of ground at service areas and then try to make their territory stand out so that arriving crews can spot them easily. And so it was at the Border Counties that one such crew turned a little corner of Roxburghshire into home. It was a re-enactment uncannily reminiscent of the American marines raising of the Stars & Stripes at Iwo Jima 71 years ago. Looking like Scottish settlers after the Highland clearances, our heroes dutifully unfurled and raised their own 'national standard' on behalf of Geoff Goudie and Murray Strachan. But which national standard is it, I hear you ask? The clue is Geoff is from Shetland.
