158 Albert Strachan Presentation trophy 1926

The above photo of the trophy presented to Mr Albert Strachan by the Glenbuchat Recreation Club was kindly submitted by Mr Strachan’s granddaughter Alison Nicoll.

Use ‘View large version’ link below if required.

Mr Strachan is noted in the photograph of the Glenbuchat Games Committee members in 1926, the year the cup is dated. It is possible that the cup was not for competing in the games but possibly in recognition of his work on the Games Committee or the Recreation Club.

Below are newspaper cuttings relating to the Recreation Club and the Glenbuchat Games.

The following is information given by Mrs Nicoll about her grandfather, Albert Strachan

“My Great Grandfather George Strachan (19/8/1854) moved to Dockington from Linthaugh, Lumsden in 1913. He had previously decided to emigrate to USA in with his Wife Barbara (nee Troup)(12/8/1855)
They sailed with Mary (30/9/79), Alexander (30/10/1883), Ann (4/1886) Elizabeth (1893). They sailed from Liverpool on the Liner Campania, arriving in Mar 19 1894. My Grandfather Albert was born in Buffalo, NY (1894). They returned in 1898 due to Barbara not having good health.

My Grandfather, Albert Strachan, was a great writer and kept a lot of records of the day and he remembered in Dec 1898, just aged 4 years, crossing the sea from Buffalo back to Liverpool with Father, Mother, and Brother and arriving at Linthaugh. His mother was unwell on the trip and died soon after arriving (18/12/1898) .
He returned to Linthaugh after staying with an Aunt in Keith and remembers his first day at school on 12/8/12. He contracted Diphtheria at 14 and did not return to school. He joined the Territorials at 16 and moved from Linthaugh to Dockington in 1913. His grandmother died at Dockington in 1913 aged 94.

My grandmother Elsie died on 10 November 1928 (Mary only being 4 yrs. and Kathleen, my mum only 1 yrs.) and grandfather farmed Dockington until 8 May 1929. He stated in his journal he had no pleasure in farming without Elsie, and could not afford a housekeepers wage and if he left farming now he was still not too old to procure another situation. He had several jobs and ended up being a reporter with the Courant Newspaper in Elgin and living in Dallas, where his daughters were brought up by Elsie’s two sisters.”
