AN almost fotgotten historic link between Carluke and the African state of Zambia could be reforged during the Commonwealth Games in Scotland this summer.

That is the hope of the Clydesdale’s MSP Aileen Campbell after she almost stumbled over Zambia’s `Carluke Connection’ when a Scottish Government colleague discovered on a visit to Zambia that its vice-president was a descendant of a Carluke man. And a pretty famous one at that!
