JM Barrie christening gown appeal





A search to find those who wore the christening robes of Peter Pan author JM Barrie has been launched by the National Trust for Scotland.

Barrie's mother Margaret lent the white gown to dozens of other families living in Kirriemuir, Angus in the years following her children's christening.

The search is part of the town's plans to mark the 150th birthday of Barrie.

The robe will be unveiled, along with the descendants of those who may have worn it, on 9 May.
