Mrs Thompson was pleased to show Mr Stewart around the home, introducing him to a number of residents. Mr Stewart was delighted to have conversations with some of the residents, discussing a variety of topics from the Black Watch, whom Mr Stewart served with, to the world cup and which teams would make the final.
