"Malcolm Boatman was from Armadale in west Lothian. He was the older brother of Kevin Boatman, a really sound bloke with a great sense of humour, a real character. He was really quite clever so I could never work out the nickname. He was my classmate through 3rd and 4th year and a good friend.

Bisto was into Geology in a big way, he taught me how to spot Agate rocks in the Ochils. He was also a keen Hillwalker. I thank him for helping to save my life when I suffered from exposure and exhaustion in the Cairngorms. Bisto stayed with me in the emergency tent to keep me warm while Alastair Dykes (Dixie) went for help. If I had been with less competent guys I might not have made it.

Thanks guys."
