"Riding thi Limmas".....[Limbers...shafts..].

I knew one lad who was riding the limmas,in the 1950's,and his pony "crossed oot" on him,that is to say,the pony went into the opposite roadway to which he should have gone,[say....right instead of left...for instance..],and the limma's nipped his leg severely,causing gangrene to set in quickly,and he had to have it amputated.

He played football,cricket,etc,just the same,with his false leg,and in those days,the leg was heavy !!

When he batted for runs he used to walk the wickets,and his mates would do the runs for him .

Very close-knit community spirit in those days!
