Presentation of silver chain for Provost's wife, 1955

On 14 April 1955, at a morning reception in the Town House, Inverness, a silver gilt chain bearing the coat of arms of the Burgh of Inverness was presented to Provost James Mackintosh Grigor for use by the Provost's wife on civic occasions. The chain was placed round Mrs Grigor's shoulders by Mr Charles Macrae, Council Officer. It was presented just in time for a ceremony later that day at the Playhouse Cinema, when the Freedom of the Royal Burgh of Inverness was conferred on the Right Honourable Thomas Johnston, Chairman of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board; Sir Hugh Mackenzie, a former Provost of Inverness; and Captain Anthony Miers, who distinguished himself as a submarine commander in 1942.
