Finlay McRae was the older brother of Kenny and was the local shoe repairer with his business in Castle Street on the opposite side of St Gilbert Street from the Eagle Hotel. Finlay in his 'Younger Days' was a footballer and the medal shown was for the Stafford Cup which was competed for between teams from Sutherland and Caithness and was played for up to the 1960's as far as I know and maybe beyond.
