James Montgomery Doohan on Juno.

13 May

Inside the Sovereign Centre shopping mall is another (remainders) bookshop called The Works at unit 15. I bought Part-54 of Star Trek The Collector’s Edition.

I clipped, and filed for keeping, the biography of James Montgomery Doohan. Mister Doohan was a prolific actor before he played Scotty, on Star Trek The Original Series.

It amazed me to learn that he was at Juno beach (the Canadian landing place) on D-Day! He was lucky enough to be hospitalised back to England, where he learned the accents of Aberdeen, London, and Yorkshire. I was four.
