They are quickly processed through the Aberdeen judicial system and sentenced to 15 hours on the run. The Craiginches warder turns his back to allow teams to break out from jail and make good their escape. To add to the fun their are prizes such as an award to the team that can travel the furthest. Other prizes during the Jailbreak Challenge Aberdeen Children 1st are the best team name, strangest destination, most sponsorship raised and the best fancy dress.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
