The most remote permanently-settled of the British isles is Foula. The contributions of the Holbourn family to this Shetland island are immense and now we learn that a senior member of the family, John, died on 8 November 2012. He was the former-husband of the late Isobel Holburn, lived in his later years at Bradford-upon-Avon and had been a subscriber to this magazine. More information about his life and times would be appreciated.
