David was appointed Head Teacher at Balerno School in 1879. It’s believed he first attended ‘Let it Blaw’ in 1885

The Club Records just give his address as Balerno, but it’s reasonable to assume he would have stayed in the schoolhouse next to the school.

David’s death in 1923 is recorded in Club Minutes.
