One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

Biographical note:
Robert Alexander Watson-Watt was born in Brechin, Scotland on April 13th 1982. He attended the local high school in Brechin and won a Scholarship to the University College, 
Dundee where he achieved a BSs degree in Electrical Engineering. In 1919 he was awarded a BSc in Physics from the University of London. 
In 1912 he took a position with the government Meteorological Office before transferring to the field observing station at Ditton Park, Slough in 1919. He became Superintendent of the Radio Research Station in 1927. 
In 1935, Watson-Watt discovered that radio waves could be used for detecting aircraft and was credited with the invention of radar. 
From 1952 onwards he lived mainly in the USA and Canada. 
He died December 5th 1973 in Inverness, Scotland. 
Watson-Watt was a Fellow and Treasurer of the Institute of Physics, a Fellow of the Royal Society and the recipient of many honoury degrees.

 Statue by Edinburgh sculptor Alan Herriot of Sir Robert Watson-Watt arrives in Brechin,his home town, this is Brechin's first ever statue.
pic Paul Reid/Angus Pictures

One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

Biographical note:
Robert Alexander Watson-Watt was born in Brechin, Scotland on April 13th 1982. He attended the local high school in Brechin and won a Scholarship to the University College, 
Dundee where he achieved a BSs degree in Electrical Engineering. In 1919 he was awarded a BSc in Physics from the University of London. 
In 1912 he took a position with the government Meteorological Office before transferring to the field observing station at Ditton Park, Slough in 1919. He became Superintendent of the Radio Research Station in 1927. 
In 1935, Watson-Watt discovered that radio waves could be used for detecting aircraft and was credited with the invention of radar. 
From 1952 onwards he lived mainly in the USA and Canada. 
He died December 5th 1973 in Inverness, Scotland. 
Watson-Watt was a Fellow and Treasurer of the Institute of Physics, a Fellow of the Royal Society and the recipient of many honoury degrees.

 Bamse is Montrose's very own war hero and is buried in the town. The St Bernard dog from Honningsvag, Norway stole the hearts of all who knew him. Bamse (meaning teddybear) arrived in Montrose on the minesweeper Thorodd during World War ll with Captain Erling Hafto and generally looked after his fellow sailors. If anyone started a fight with one of his crew, Bamse got up on his hind legs and at over six foot tall, clamped his great paws on the assailant to end any fight. 
The Bamse Project under Montrose Heritage Trust raised £50,000 to erect a larger than life-size bronze statue of Bamse at Montrose Harbour. Half the donations came from Norway.

If anyone started a fight with one of his crew, Bamse got up on his hind legs and at over six foot tall, clamped his great paws on the assailant to end any fight. 
The Bamse Project under Montrose Heritage Trust raised £50,000 to erect a larger than life-size bronze statue of Bamse at Montrose Harbour. Half the donations came from Norway.

20130429Watson-WattPR 
 Pic shows Edinburgh Sculptor Alan Herriot's bronze sculpture of Robert Watson-Watt

One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

 Pic shows St Ninians Square in Brechin where Edinburgh Sculptor Alan Herriot's bronze sculpture of Robert Watson-Watt will be situated.

One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

 Pic shows Edinburgh Sculptor Alan Herriot with his bronze sculpture of Robert Watson-Watt

One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

Biographical note:
Robert Alexander Watson-Watt was born in Brechin, Scotland on April 13th 1982. He attended the local high school in Brechin and won a Scholarship to the University College,

In 1912 he took a position with the government Meteorological Office before transferring to the field observing station at Ditton Park, Slough in 1919. He became Superintendent of the Radio Research Station in 1927. 
In 1935, Watson-Watt discovered that radio waves could be used for detecting aircraft and was credited with the invention of radar. 
From 1952 onwards he lived mainly in the USA and Canada. 
He died December 5th 1973 in Inverness, Scotland.

 The witches of Macbeth, huddled around their cauldron in front of Glamis Castle, Angus... the figures are carved from wood felled in the grounds of the castle.
Yorkshire-based Neith Art's Kim Neith Thompson and Rob Neith Nicholson carried out the Glamis commission, based at the castle, and head gardener Des Cotton said the project would utilize centuries-old timber from some of the magnificent trees in the grounds.
The Angus castle is home to the eponymous character in Shakespeares play, and the witches are the first in what is planned to be a series of carved sculptures from the famous work, using wood from some of the mighty fallen trees on Strathmore estate the will be positioned on a Macbeth trail.
The castle pinetum was planted by the 13th Earl of Strathmore around 1870 with a variety of exotic trees, many of them conifers native to North America.

Following difficulties in maintaining the pinetum after the death of the 14th Earl in 1944, the 18th Earl Michael Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who passed away in February 2016 commenced a programme of replanting and restoration

DAVID COOK LIFE & ART

Wall Projects has built it's reputation on being an alternative art gallery exhibiting some of the most dynamic and contemporary art in Scotland. Kim Canale, Gallerist, continues to put on shows that are fresh and raw providing a fusion of artistic excellence that never disappoints. Her recent description as a “one woman whirlwind of artistic energy” shows no sign of abating as she embarks on her latest venture teaming up with Taylor's, the largest volume auction house in Scotland.

Their new premises in Montrose, are to host a programme of art exhibitions continuing Wall Project's trend of using alternative spaces to show some of the most exciting art in Scotland today.

This programme of events is to be launched with a solo show of one of Scotland's most enigmatic artists, David Cook. Like Joan Eardley at nearby Catterline, Cook has become obsessed with the rugged coastline, wild seas and tempestuous skies of the North East. The last time he exhibited such a large body of work was at the Scottish Gallery in 2009.

His expressionist landscapes and seascapes are compelling viewing and this is a rare opportunity for art lovers and collectors alike to view such a vast collection of his work under one roof and unusually for Taylors all the paintings will be sold direct as opposed to under the hammer.

The exhibition opens on Friday 19th November from 6-8pm where there will be an opportunity to meet the artist in person. It finishes on December 15th.

 William Lamb statue on Montrose's High Street
William Lamb was born in a small cottage in Mill Street, Montrose on the 1st June 1893. At the age of thirteen, he was apprenticed to his older brother James as a stone mason and monumental sculptor. During his apprenticeship, Lamb attended continuation classes at Montrose Academy and was encouraged by his art teacher, Lena Gaudie.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Lamb enlisted with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders. He was wounded twice and eventually invalided out of the army with extensive damage to his right hand. Undeterred by this trauma, Lamb attended Edinburgh College of Art where he taught himself to draw, paint and sculpt with his left hand.
In 1932 Lamb was commissioned by the Duchess of York, a native of Angus, to model portrait heads of her daughters, the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose. Impressed by his skill, the Duchess also commissioned Lamb to produce a portrait of herself.

 Scottish watercolour painter Joseph Maxwell at the Eduardo Alessandro Studios, Dundee. Maxwell is an accomplished teacher and painter. A distinguished member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Water Colours, he shows frequently in group exhibitions, and was one of 10 artists chosen by the Royal Academy in 1978 to show work in the Louvre in Paris. His exhibition Light of Two Lands has been 10 years in the making, and is his first solo show for more than a decade. It consists of a selection of more than 40 works from his two favourite painting spots, the countryside around his home in Grandtully, near Aberfeldy, and the Marche area of Italy near Macerata. His landscapes are quiet and carefully composed, with delicate, moody colour, often with a subtle geometry in their composition that indicates his love of line. Maxwell was born in Leith, the son of policeman, and left school at 15 to work in the Co-op - "the worst clerk they ever had". After a brief spell in the police, he worked for Ordnance Survey drawing maps, before joining the RAF when war broke out as a cartographer and draughtsman.

 The witches of Macbeth, huddled around their cauldron in front of Glamis Castle, Angus... the figures are carved from wood felled in the grounds of the castle.
Yorkshire-based Neith Art are carrying out the Glamis commission, based at the castle, and head gardener Des Cotton said the project would utilise centuries-old timber from some of the magnificent trees in the grounds.
The Angus castle is home to the eponymous character in Shakespeare’s play, and the witches are the first in what is planned to be a series of carved sculptures from the famous work, using wood from some of the mighty fallen trees on Strathmore estate the will be positioned on a Macbeth trail.
The castle pinetum was planted by the 13th Earl of Strathmore around 1870 with a variety of exotic trees, many of them conifers native to North America.

Following difficulties in maintaining the pinetum after the death of the 14th Earl in 1944, the 18th Earl – Michael Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who passed away in February 2016 – commenced a programme of replanting and restoration.

 Pic shows Robert Watson-Watt

One of the forgotten heroes of the Battle of Britain and widely known as the “Father of Radar” Robert Watson Watt whose revolutionary tracking system helped defeat the Luftwaffe has finally been imortilised in the shape of a fantastic statue by Edinburgh based artist Alan Herriot. Brechin's first ever statue will be erected high on a plinth in the Angus town's St Ninians Square.
Sir Robert Watson-Watt was born at 5 Union Street, Brechin, on April 13, 1892, and was educated at Damacre School and Brechin High School. He graduated with a BSc in Engineering in 1912 from University College, Dundee, which was then part of the University of St Andrews. Following graduation he was offered an assistantship by Professor William Peddie who excited his interest in radio waves.

His work during the Second World War provided the Royal Air Force with early warning radar that allowed the pilots to detect and intercept attacking German aircrafts during the Battle of Britain.
This was a pivotal moment for Britain and Watson-Watt’s contribution was recognized in 1942 with a Knighthood

Some years later Watson-Watt reportedly was stopped while driving in Canada for speeding by a policeman operating a radar gun.Watt commented “Had I known what you were going to do with it I would never have invented it!”
Watt worote a peom about this event in his life....
Pity Sir Robert Watson-Watt, strange target of this radar plot,
And thus, with others I can mention, the victim of his own invention.
His magical all-seeing eye enabled cloud-bound planes to fly,
but now by some ironic twist, it spots the speeding motorist and bites,
no doubt with legal wit, the hand that once created it !

Biographical note:
Robert Alexander Watson-Watt was born in Brechin, Scotland on April 13th 1982. He attended the local high school in Brechin and won a Scholarship to the University College, 
Dundee where he achieved a BSs degree in Electrical Engineering. In 1919 he was awarded a BSc in Physics from the University of London. 
In 1912 he took a position with the government Meteorological Office before transferring to the field observing station at Ditton Park, Slough in 1919. He became Superintendent of the Radio Research Station in 1927. 
In 1935, Watson-Watt discovered that radio waves could be used for detecting aircraft and was credited with the invention of radar. 
From 1952 onwards he lived mainly in the USA and Canada. 
He died December 5th 1973 in Inverness, Scotland. 
Watson-Watt was a Fellow and Treasurer of the Institute of Physics, a Fellow of the Royal Society and the recipient of many honoury degrees.
