The Thistle Magazine (John Mitchell bequest)

The Thistle Magazine was published between November 1961 and February 1973 by The West Point Grey Scottish Country Dance Club of British Columbia based in Vancouver, Canada. Although there was an Editorial Committee, most of the material was produced by Hugh Thurston.

London Branch was given a complete set of “The Thistle” by the historian John W Mitchell for our Branch archives. The information that is in The Thistle is a great resource to all who are interested in SCD and associated matters.

Scans of all 55 magazines are available below. The PDFs are searchable and some of the later copies have indexes of the contents.
