Alexander started work in 1960 at the age 15 for David Goseman joiners in Aberlour. He chose the job because he wanted to be a joiner.
He started his work day at 8 o’clock. He had his break at 10 o’clock. He had his lunch, normally at 12 or 1 o’clock. He finished work at 5 o’clock.
He earned £2 a week and handed it to his family. He worked as a joiner for 60 years.
In his spare time, he played tennis and badminton in the Craigellachie village hall.
