This film is for Mrs Palmer.
Patricia Palmer was the caretaker of the Tower of Glenstrae [one of the ‘retreats’ of my uncle when home from Africa.]
Mrs Palmer, a large woman from England, had fled to Argyll from a failed marriage.
It was Mrs Palmer who took me to find conkers in the grounds of the Tower and who played board games with me when it rained.
