Within every legend or Myth there is a Grain of Truth
THE "GRONINGEN SCOTCH EGG"
And so it is with the "GRONINGEN " SCOTCH EGG "
Thursday, 31 Dec 2020 I had an email from Marcel Hensema who is from Groningen,
in the Netherlands who had been in contact with my great friend ,Menno Wielinga ,
who gave him my website address in connection with any information on a ,
so called scotch egg ?
i must admit at first to being a bit sceptical , but after research about the origins of scotch eggs ,it was entirely possible that the connection could be verified, Marcel and i ,
sent emails back and forth and he offered to send me a christmas bauble with a letter
explaining his reasons for coming to the conclusion that he did,
i have included a copy of the letter below .
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MARCEL HENSEMA,
for not only Bringing this formerly unknown part of the HMS TIMBERTOWN,
story to my attention in the first place, but also for very kindly at his own expence,
sending me one of his excellant Christmas Baubles , and also for furnishing the, information in the attached copy letter,
THANK YOU MARCEL.
