Pic shows Walter Davidson ...born on Sept. 30, 1876 in Milwaukee,Wis., to William C. Davidson. In his youth, Walter learned a trade as a machinist working for the Milwaukee Railroad, and later worked in Parsons, Kan. In 1903, he received a letter from his brother Arthur, who had teamed up with their longtime friend William Harley. As the story goes, the letter said that the two had built a motorcycle and were going to let young Walter take the first ride. When Walter arrived in Milwaukee, it turned out that the new motorcycle was unfinished and the two young builders needed his help! In any case, the remainder of his life would be spent with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company

In 1903 21-year old William S. Harley and 20-year old Arthur Davidson make available to the public the first production Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. The bike was built to be a racer, with a 3-1/8 inch bore and 3-1/2 inch stroke. The factory in which they worked was a 10 x 15-foot wooden shed with the words "Harley-Davidson Motor Company" crudely scrawled on the door. Arthur's brother Walter quits his job in Kansas and joins their efforts on April 17th

 Bubble car being auctioned tomorrow at Taylors Auction Rooms in Montrose
The 1959 BMW Isetta 300 which has only done 14,767 miles has 4 wheels, is right hand drive built under licence in Brighton registration VOY937 and comes complete with a sun roof .
the car is expected to fetch £15000.00 - £20000.00

Pic shows auction room assistant Sophie Sim and the Isetta 300

This Italian-designed Isetta microcar was built under licence in a number of different countries, including Spain, Belgium, France, Brazil, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Produced in the post-World War II years, a time when cheap short-distance transportation was most needed, it became one of the most successful and influential city cars ever created. Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a ‘bubble car', a name later given to other similar vehicles.
With space for two and their luggage, the Isetta was perfect for the UK's urban and rural roads. In 1957, Isetta of Great Britain began producing 300 models at their factory in Brighton under licence from BMW. The British cars were right-hand drive with the door hinged from the right hand side of the car and the steering column moved across to the right as well. Being right-hand drive meant that the driver and engine were on the same side, so a counterweight was added to the left side to compensate. Lucas electrics replaced the German Hella and Bosch components, with a different headlamp housing being used. Girling brake components replaced the ATE brake parts.
In 1962, Isetta of Great Britain stopped production of the little cars but continued to produce Isetta engines until 1964.
The Isetta ‘Bubble Car' is surely the smallest car BMW will ever make!

In his youth, Walter learned a trade as a machinist working for the Milwaukee Railroad, and later worked in Parsons, Kan. In 1903, he received a letter from his brother Arthur, who had teamed up with their longtime friend William Harley. As the story goes, the letter said that the two had built a motorcycle and were going to let young Walter take the first ride. When Walter arrived in Milwaukee, it turned out that the new motorcycle was unfinished and the two young builders needed his help! In any case, the remainder of his life would be spent with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company

 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.

 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.

 Marines set off from RM Condor base in Arbroath on the final leg of 1664 Challenge marking 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines....
Throughout the duration of the Royal Marines 1664 Challenge more than 2,000 marines have taken part, but a core group of six will take part in the whole journey – day in/day out.
The six men have been drawn from the six main Royal Marine units:-
30 Cdo, 40 Cdo, 42 Cdo, 43 Cdo, 45 Cdo and the Commando Logistics Regiment.

The Royal Marines Corps was formed in 1664 and this year marks the 350th anniversary of that event.
To commemorate the historic occasion, the challenge was devised by Major Jon Clare and Lt Col Gary Green, that would test Royal Marines both physically, and mentally, and display the true commando spirit and determination to succeed.
The Royal Marines 1664 Challenge was the result – an event that covers over 4000 miles in a various countries by ski, sail, cycle, canoe and then by foot.
By the time the Royal Marines 1664 Challenge concludes with a marathon around London in July, more than 4,200 commandos will have taken part.
As well as celebrating the Corps’ 350th anniversary, the Royal Marines 1664 Challenge is hoping to raise £500,000 for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF) the overarching Royal Marines charity.

Marine Tom Barker, 19, joined the Royal Marines in November 2011, at the age of 16. He completed the 32 weeks of arduous Commando training to pass-out as a Royal Marines Commando, the youngest in his Troop, being awarded the Physical Training medal.

After pass-out Mne Barker was posted to 45 Commando RM, Arbroath,With them he has been deployed on COUGAR ’12, visiting Malta, France, Italy, and Albania, and CETUS ’13 (Norway). “I enjoy learning new skills when deployed: the more knowledge and experience I can gain the better soldier I can be, especially in challenging environments like the arctic”

Mne Barker has specialised within the Corps, joining the Mountain Leader branch. As an ML3 he has been trained in vertical assault, climbing, mountain movement, surveillance and reconnaissance. “I chose the ML branch because of the amount of responsibility that you’re given, the chance to learn new skills, and a personal interest in reconnaissance”

He comes from Carlisle, Cumbria, where he attended Morton School. At the age of 15 Mne Barker took part in the School’s annual 50 mile walking challenge: he ran the event in under 9 hours, marking him as a highly capable endurance athlete. “My teacher told me I should have a go at running the distance: I didn’t really know what I was doing, I just found a pace I felt comfortable with and kept going”.

The Arbroath smokie, a world renowned delicacy, is haddock smoked over woodchips by a method originating in the nearby village of authmithie.
Local legend has it that a store caught fire one night, destroying barrels of Haddock preserved in salt. The following morning, the people of Auchmithie came to clean up the ruin and found some of the barrels had caught fire, cooking the Haddock inside. Further inspections revealed the Haddock was edible and quite tasty.

In reality, it,s much more likely that the villagers at Auchmithie are of Scandinavian descent as the Smokie making process is similar to methods of smoking which are still carried out today in areas of Scandinavia.

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 !

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.

 Peter Pan Author J M Barrie's Birthplace in Kirriemuir.

The magical story of Peter Pan's adventures has captivated children for over a century. His creator, J M Barrie, was born here in 1860, one of ten children. See how his early life at Kirriemuir with his brothers and sisters inspired the characters and storylines in his work. The wash house here became his first theatre. It could it also have inspired the Wendy House in Peter Pan? Tread carefully in the garden; there's a living-willow crocodile and a Pirates' Workshop! The house next door, No 11, holds a fascinating exhibition about Barrie's life and his literary and theatrical works, along with important memorabilia such as theatrical costumes and an original manuscript of Peter Pan with Barries own notations.

 A full scale carved timber replica of the figurehead from the renowned tea clipper "the Cutty Sark" carved from Linton's original drawings 3 metres tall. with a black granite plaque engraved with the image of the ship. The figurehead depicts the young witch in Robert Burns' poem "Tam O Shanter" grasping the tail of Tam's mare, her right breast bared. In the Scot's language 'cutty sark' means a short shirt or shift, it is interesting that despite that fact and the otherwise erotic nature of the figure, the carving is actually wearing quite a long shift.
 Hercules Linton the designer of the 'Cutty Sark' was born in Inverbervie in 1837, the ship was built in Dumbarton by the firm Scott and Linton in 1869 and is now kept at Greenwich. (recently damaged by fire 2007). This memorial dedicated by the people of Inverbervie on 11th July 1997 replaces one unveiled by Sir Francis Chichester in 1969 (created by Scott Sutherland 1910 - 1984). Linton died in 1900 in the same house as he was born in and is buried in Inverbervie kirkyard.

 Sandend, Banffshire. An open boat up on the net drying green at the harbour.

Undiscovered Scotland says, "Sandend is perhaps the smallest of the many old fishing fishing villages scattered along the north-facing coasts of Moray and Aberdeenshire. It is also one of the most attractive.

The village lies just three miles east of Cullen on the west side of the Scattery Burn as it flows into the Moray Firth at the west end of the expanse of sand lining Sandend Bay."

 Montrose, Angus looking towards the lifeboat station and lighthouse. The scene is close to Montrose harbour, which has steadily grown over the past 900 years. Montrose has at different times been an important centre for various types of fishing, from salmon to whales and herring, and including for a time a pearl fishery in the river itself. It has also been an important timber port, and for many centuries was one of Scotland's largest exporters of wool. Today it also benefits from harbour activity connected with the North Sea Oil industry

 Montrose, Angus looking towards the lifeboat station and lighthouse. The scene is close to Montrose harbour, which has steadily grown over the past 900 years. Montrose has at different times been an important centre for various types of fishing, from salmon to whales and herring, and including for a time a pearl fishery in the river itself. It has also been an important timber port, and for many centuries was one of Scotland's largest exporters of wool. Today it also benefits from harbour activity connected with the North Sea Oil industry

 A small boat returning to harbour in the late evening at Portsoy,Aberdeenshire.
Portsoy was established as a burgh in a charter signed by Mary, Queen of Scots in 1550, and the first harbour was built at around the same time.Portsoy lies on the north facing coast of Aberdeenshire, approximately midway between Cullen and Banff. Of all the many ports along the Aberdeenshire and Moray coasts, Portsoy was one of the earliest to be established, and as a result is one of the most fascinating.

 Harbour Beacon, Anstruther, Fife, Scotland.

Anstruther's many shops and busy attractive harbour make it the main commercial centre of the East Neuk of Fife. Fifty years ago, this picturesque port was so busy it was possible to walk from one side of the wide harbour to the other by stepping from one fishing boat to the next. Then the North Sea herring shoals disappeared, taking with them much of the fishing fleet. Photo Ian Paterson

 A fishing boat returns to Pittenweem, Fife, Scotland, against a backdrop of the Bass Rock.

The Bass Rock, more correctly simply The Bass, is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, approximately one mile off North Berwick.

The island is a volcanic plug and stands over 100 m high in the Firth of Forth Islands Special Protection Area which covers some, but not all of the islands in the inner and outer Firth. The Bass Rock is a Site of Special Scientific Interest in its own right, due to its Gannet colony

 Pennan Inn, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Formerly a fishing village, Pennan became famous in the 1980s for being used as one of the main locations for the film Local Hero, and representing the fictional village of Ferness. Film enthusiasts have come from all over the world to make a phone call in the red telephone box which featured in the film. The phone box was in fact originally put there only as a prop for the film, and then removed, but as a result of public demand a genuine telephone box was installed close to the same spot, and is now a protected monument

 A full scale carved timber replica of the figurehead from the renowned tea clipper "the Cutty Sark" carved from Linton's original drawings 3 metres tall. with a black granite plaque engraved with the image of the ship. The figurehead depicts the young witch in Robert Burns' poem "Tam O Shanter" grasping the tail of Tam's mare, her right breast bared. In the Scot's language 'cutty sark' means a short shirt or shift, it is interesting that despite that fact and the otherwise erotic nature of the figure, the carving is actually wearing quite a long shift.
 Hercules Linton the designer of the 'Cutty Sark' was born in Inverbervie in 1837, the ship was built in Dumbarton by the firm Scott and Linton in 1869 and is now kept at Greenwich. (recently damaged by fire 2007). This memorial dedicated by the people of Inverbervie on 11th July 1997 replaces one unveiled by Sir Francis Chichester in 1969 (created by Scott Sutherland 1910 - 1984). Linton died in 1900 in the same house as he was born in and is buried in Inverbervie kirkyard.

AN Angus Council project to bring one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland back to life has come to fruition.
A six year project has seen £1.8m invested in the historic Montrose Mid Links to restore them to their Victorian splendour.
The nine garden parks run parallel to the High Street and form an integral part of the Montrose townscape. 
They are a tribute to Victorian philanthropy and vision, and in particular the foresight of one man George Scott, who created the gardens in the late 19th century.
His imagination turned what was a quagmire in winter and a dust bowl in summer into a series of elegant gardens which runs the length of Montrose Town Centre.

 Brechin Cathedral & Round Tower.

The present cathedral building (not large by cathedral standards) dates from the early 13th century and the square tower from the 14th century. But during restoration work, stones from a Norman Romanesque arch were found dating from around 1130 to 1150 and there is speculation that a new church was built at that time (during the tenure of Bishop Samson).

The tower at Brechin is 86 feet to the wallhead and over 106 feet to the apex of the octagonal cap-house (which replaced a conical one in the late 14th century. Although externally the tower narrows towards the top the internal diameter does not change much through the seven floors to the top. The towers were used as libraries and for keeping valuables and as refuges in times of violent attack.

Of all the many ports along the Aberdeenshire and Moray coasts, Portsoy was one of the earliest to be established, and as a result is one of the most fascinating. Portsoy was established as a burgh in a charter signed by Mary, Queen of Scots in 1550, and the first harbour was built at around the same

 Slains Castle, near Cruden Bay, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Set on the dramatic cliff tops about 1 mile from Cruden Bay, Slains Castle is one of the most famous castles in Scotland. Slains was first erected in 1597 by the 9th Earl of Erroll. 
The main reason for Slain's fame is Brahm Stoker's association with it. While in Cruden Bay in 1895 he started work on what was to become his most famous book, 'Dracula', and it is said that the inspiration for this most famous vampire's home in Transylvania was Slains Castle. Indeed there is evidence to suggest that Count Dracula was to come ashore at Cruden Bay in early versions of the tale, but that this was later changed to Whitby in Yorkshire. Photo Ian Paterson

 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.

 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.

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 detail from 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 !

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.

The complete set of eleven magnificent wartime memorabilia ceramic items of World War I political and military leaders were crafted between 1915-20 by Wilkinson after designs by Sir Francis Carruthers Gould. Gould was the first political cartoonist ever hired by a British daily newspaper, the Pall Mall Budget in 1888. He also was a cartoonist for the Westminster Gazette where his Kruger cartoon had first appeared. Only 150 complete sets of eleven were possible because the smallest run was of 150 jugs of WW1 General Louis Botha the formal Boer War General. On display are ten - Lord Kitchener, Field Marshall John French, Field Marshall Douglas Haig, Prime Minister David Lloyd George, Marshall Joseph Joffre, Admiral John Jellicoe, Admiral David Beatty, Marshall Ferdinand Foch, President Woodro

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.

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.

 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.

 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.
