The Kist:

This film is for Mrs Palmer. Mrs Palmer, a large woman from England, had fled to Argyll from a failed marriage. Patricia Palmer was the caretaker of the Tower of Glenstrae [one of the ‘retreats’ of my uncle when home from Africa.] 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.
