Ronald attended King’s College, Aberdeen University in the early ’60s. He financed his studies by working during the university vacations. He was fortunate in finding many memorable jobs. He helped to build the hydroelectric power station inside Ben Cruachan; he was an assistant skin-grader in Hudson Bay’s Beaver House in the City of London; a ‘postie’ at the post office in Exhibition Road; and a hod-carrier and general labourer on the construction of tall buildings at Swiss Cottage, South Acton and Ealing. He came to love London as much as his native Scotland.
