Marono Dammo

The Queen – Marono-Dammo – did us the honour of dressing specially to have her photo taken, and donned a lovely shawl, asking my lady friend if it was not ‘sehr schones Tuch’ (a very pretty shawl) and indicating to me in Romanes the various colours – kaulo (black), selno (green), lollo (red), and so forth. One of the Romani-chals (boys) caused considerable amusement by shouting in most approved Galloway dialect to a boy who was likely to spoil the photo “Haud oot o’ the road, boych.”
