New Clan Commissioner for the United Kingdom
" I am delighted to announce the appointment of the Clan's first Commissioner for the United Kingdom. For too long the Clan has lacked formal representation in the UK and this appointment marks a significant development.
Our Commissioner is Donald Maclaine - the great, great grandson of Allan Maclaine who was the fourth son of Murdoch Maclaine, 20th of Lochbuie. ( Effectively that makes Donald my 3rd cousin, once removed!)
Donald was commissioned into the British army from RMA Sandhurst in 1974. He served in Germany and Northern Ireland before resigning from the army in 1994 to follow a career in aviation with Westland Helicopters. Donald is currently the Chief Test Pilot of Augusta Westland.
Donald is married to Alison and has three daughters - Fiona, Catherine and Joanne. They live in Dorset.
