BILLY Laidlaw, who is this year’s jubilee Cornet at Langholm Common Riding, went back to school to tell the pupils about his special year.
Billy, who carried the flag in 1969, did a talk and showed memorabilia to the pupils in the P3 class.
His granddaughter, Gracie Robertson, is in P3 and she and her classmates loved listening to his experience and asked him some great questions.
Colette Grant, P3 teacher, said she would like to thank Billy and Gracie’s mum, Hannah, for a very well-prepared talk with lots of precious props.
To make it even more of a family affair, Gracie’s younger sister, Lexi, also went along.
