"I to worked for D. Brotchie & Sons, Coal Merchants, in  the 1970s, based at Haymarket depotI can honestly say that those who worked for him were well looked after.

I was a porter with his son-in-law Don, but my fondest memories was portering with wee Charlie Downie

David Brotchie was a gent and I was sorry to leave his employ, but the writing was on the wall for the coal industry with smokeless zones and central heating having an impact on sales.

It's the best job I ever had."
