Gardiner takes a trip with North British Railway ... and more Thursday outcomes!
If archaeologists can relocate battlefields it's just a short step to see Colonel Gardiner ....

Meanwhile, back at the Thursday Workshops in Cockenzie...
... all manner of fine embroidery continues to arrive whilst the stitching goes on.
The images above and below depict some of the detailing from the first engagement of the campaign at High Bridge, Crossing the Fords of Frew and the Occupation of Falkirk - later to be the scene of the Prince's second great victory in January 1746 this time over General Hawley.
