This week I’m sharing a few more photos from our trip to Orkney this past summer. They are pictures of a statue of John Rae that stands in Stromness, Orkney. I’m sharing these now because John Rae is finally being officially recognised next Tuesday at a ceremony and plaque unveiling in Westminster Abbey. This restoration of his reputation is long overdue and will please many people who over the years have worked hard to see this happen, especially the Canadian writer, Ken McGoogan, who told Rae’s story in his book, Fatal Passage.
