Billy had an illustrious carrier in Round Table which included an eighteen months period as PRO for WOCO.

May the hinges of friendship never rust, or the wings of luve lose a feather. Toast from Dean Ramseyâ€™s Reminiscences of Scottish Life. (Tracing the source of our motto) This accompaniment of domestic drinking by a toast or sentimentâ€”the practice of which is now confined to public entertainments--was then invariable in private parties, and was supposed to enliven and promote the good fellowship of the social circle. There was a great variety of these toasts, some of them exclusively Scottish. The ordinary form of drinking a health was in the address, "Here's t' ye." Then such as the following were named by successive members of the company at the call of the host:-Edward Bannerman Ramsay May those who live truly be always believed, And those who deceive us be always deceived. Here's to the men of all classes, Who through lasses and glasses Will make themselves asses! I drink to the health of another, And the other I drink to is he In the hope that he drinks to another, And the other he drinks to is me. Then let us toast John Barleycorn, Each man a glass in hand Andy may his great prosperity Ne'er fail in old Scotland! May the hinges of friendship never rust, or the wings of luve lose a feather.
