First Day of School in Canada

“I also remember my first day at my new Canadian school when my mother sent me of in what she thought was the best clothes we had - my kilt. I needn't say what happened except to everyone in the school it was "look at the boy in the dress!!" Needless to say I ran home at noon for lunch in absolute tears never, never to wear a kilt again. Something now as an adult I'm afraid I regret but as a little boy I was at that time very fragile to say the least”
