Obituary of Ramsay William Rainsford Hannay
The Scotsman Online
Published 16 March 2004



RAMSAY Hannay, a war-time member of the Special Operations Executive who was in Paris for the liberation of France and reached Berlin before the advancing Russian armies, has died at the age of 92.

He was head of one of the oldest established families in south-west Scotland. They originated from Sorbie Tower in Wigtownshire and have lived at their present home at Kirkdale, near Newton Stewart, since 1532. A founder member of the Clan Hannay Society in 1960, he was subsequently asked to become its chief. This he agreed to do, with misgivings and some amusement, but he came to enjoy the contact it gave him with people across the world and he made several trips to clan events in the United States. He proved to be a popular and committed chief of the clan and gave a warm welcome to any member venturing to Galloway in search of their roots. He was a member of the Council of Chiefs and of the Royal Company of Archers.

Ramsay William Rainsford Hannay was born in 1911 in India, where his father was serving in the army. He was one of two brothers who, like many in India at that time, caught dysentery. Only he survived; his brother died in infancy. He returned to Scotland with his parents and, while his father was in the trenches in France, he lived with his mother in Edinburgh, where he first went to school. He had early memories of barefoot children in the poverty of the Old Town and of black plumed horses leading funeral processions along Princes Street for victims of the 1918 ’flu pandemic, which claimed more victims worldwide than there were casualties in the First World War.

It was a war in which his father was wounded, and his mother lost her only brother, killed at Gallipoli while serving with the King’s Own Scottish Borderers. He also lost another uncle, on his father’s side, who died in Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq.

Ramsay was educated at Winchester College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied law and where he rowed for his college, as he had for his school. After university, he worked for an estate agent in Ayrshire before going to London to complete his legal training.

At the outbreak of the Second World War, he joined the Highland Light Infantry but, after being stationed in Glasgow, he was seconded to the Special Operations Executive, where he trained personnel in both the UK and Canada for operations behind enemy lines in Europe. However, he spoke little about his time with the SOE.

After the war, he resumed his career in the legal department of the Board of Trade in London, where he worked under prime ministers Harold Wilson and Edward Heath.

As a younger man, he was a keen sailor and was a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club. When he was in his mid-50s, he inherited two old family properties close to each other in Galloway, including two large houses. With great foresight, he demolished two-thirds of one and converted the other into apartments. He used the potential of beaches on the Solway coast to start a successful caravan park, which provided a way for his family to continue their long association with the area.

He continued his father’s involvement with the Scouts and with dry stane walling. For more than 25 years, he was the president of the Galloway Area Scout Council, and for many years served on the committee of the dry stane dyking competition. He was a founder member of the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain, and at one time its president. A founder chairman of the South West of Scotland Holiday Parks Association, he was also on the National Caravan Council and the National Federation of Site Operators. He was a Trustee of Carsluith Hall and honorary president of the Gatehouse Festival Group.

To all these many activities, he brought humour, broad experience, his Christian faith and a genuine concern for the people involved and what they were trying to achieve.

In 1936, he married Margaret Wiseman, who predeceased him, and he is survived by a daughter and a son, three grandsons, and four great grandchildren. He had been living in a cottage next to his grandson and great grandchildren, but latterly was in a local nursing home, where he faced his increasing disabilities with patience, courage and good humour.

30 Jan 2004Obituary of Ramsay William Rainsford Hannay
Galloway Gazette newspaper, January 30, 2004

Ramsay W. Rainsford Hannay was born in India where his father was serving in the army, but returned as a child to Edinburgh during the First World War. He was subsequently educated at Winchester college where he rowed for his school, as he did for Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read law.

At the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the Highland Light Infantry but was seconded to Special Operations where he trained personnel in Canada and the UK for action behind enemy lines in Europe. He was in Paris for the liberation of France, and in Berlin before the Russian Army arrived.

After the war he worked in the legal department of the Board of Trade under Harold Wilson and Edward Heath, before taking early retirement to manage the family estate in Galloway, where he established a successful caravan holiday park.

Ramsay Hannay was a founder member of the Clan Hannay Society in 1960 and subsequently became its first Chief. The Hannay, Hannnah, Hanna and Hanneys originated from Sobie in Wigtownshire. Sorbie Tower was donated to the Clan Hannay Society in 1965, since when there have been annual Clan Gatherings and growing international membership. Ramsay Hannay was a member of the Council of Chiefs and travelled widely to Clan functions, especially in North America. He took a great interest in Clan Members who were always made welcome when they visited Galloway.

A man of integrity with a strong sense of humour, and a natural concern for others, his avice was widely sought. He was an Honory Sheriff and continued his own father's involvement with scouting, being President of the Galloway Area Scout Council, and with Dry Stone Walling, being a founder member of the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain and at one time its President. He was also a founding Chairman of the south West Holiday Parks Association, President of the Gatehouse Festival Group, and Trustee of Carsluith Village Hall.

In 1936 he married Margaret Wiseman, who predeceased him, and is survived by a daughter and son, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. After a well attended Service of Thanksgiving at Kirkmabreck Parish Church, Creetown, he was buried in the old churchyard above Kirkdale house, his family home.
