Page 6 of the latest Berwickshire
carries a photo of what is claimed to be Dunbar fishermen taken in the 19th Century. A letter from an Ipswich lady beside the image appeals for more information about the photo and the identities of the remarkably hirsute fisherfolk portrayed. The writer's husband's ancestors were fishermen in Dunbar and one of the fishermen a resemblance to her husband. It seems to Huttonian that the fisherman on the extreme right bears a remarkable resemblance to Saddam Hussein-or at least the shot of him taken as he emerged from his hidey hole last year having been unearthed (literally) by US troops. And more extraordinary still he seems to be wearing the self same hat favoured by the former Iraqi leader in that photo of him on a balcony firing a rifle into the air which was so beloved by the Ba'ath PR machine pre 2003. I hope that I have not innocently fingered the one who looks like Mr Ipswich Lady, if so many apologies. Otherwise I suspect a devoted supporter of Mr Saddam who has doctored an old photo in the hope it receives some publicity and cause fear and confusion amongst the Western forces in Iraq. Bloggees have a look. Fishwick Special Branch are on the case.
