The daughter of the late Christian sportsman Eric Liddell, Patricia Liddell Russell, is pictured receiving a reissue of her father’s Scotland International Rugby Cap, which had been lost, on Tuesday of last week, at a fund-raising gala in Edinburgh. She is pictured with the author, Alexander McCall Smith (far left); the chief executive of the Eric Liddell Centre, John MacMillan (second from right); and former international rugby player Chris Paterson, who holds the record number of caps for Scotland (far right). The Eric Liddell Centre provides care for the elderly and people with dementia.
