Recalling Scots mourning for the thousands fallen at Flodden Field
on 9 Sep 1513, Flowers of the Forest is the name of a pipe tune and
a later poem, and now is traditionally used for a roll of clan members
who have gone on before.

Dr. Jack Sinclair
Recently I attended a memorial service for Dr. Jack Sinclair of
Kingston (and until three years ago, of Toronto). Jack had a very
distinguished career as a football player at Varsity in the 1920s
where he was known as "Long John", as a medical doctor in
the Toronto area, and as a Wing Commander (Medical Officer) throughout
WW II in the R.C.A.F. He is survived by his wife Beth, a son John and
a daughter Dr. Jane, both of whom are married. There are four
Just after I had posted the last issue, Rory Sinclair telephoned
me to say that his brother, Sandy Sinclair had died. You will recall
I mentioned Sandy's tragic illness in the last issue. He gave a lot
of himself to this Association, certainly in its formative stages,
and we have lost a staunchly supportive member. Our sincere sympathy
is sent to Roselma and her other, surviving children.
Reginald Charles Lundy
With sincere regret we report the death, on November 4th 1993, of
Reginald Charles Lundy, 41. Reg, the son of Ray and Shirley of Owen
Sound, was a school teacher at Paisley, Ontario, and had been married
only a very few years. He and his wife had one child, a baby boy just
one year old. Ray's mother was originally a Sinclair, of the Sinclairs
of Scotch Corners in Lanark County.
George S. Sinclair
I am sorry to announce the death of an old friend, George S. Sinclair
of Thorburn, near New Glasgow. George had been an active member of Clan
Sinclair since its founding, and always made our Services of Worship
at the gatherings special, through his church music. He was a highly
respected member of his community and served as Organist and Choir
Director in several churches in the New Glasgow district over the years.
