The folks at Davsus, who’ve done such a great job setting up this website, advise me that I should have a blog.
We’ve added a link to the law firm in London which represents some of the families involved in the call for the British Government to launch a proper inquiry into the 1948 Massacre at Batang Kali in Malaya. It’s an interesting site.
The press release about How the Scots Created Canada being made into a talking book attracted the interest of a magazine here in Canada and in case of small-worldism, it turned out that the editor’s father was a major player in the “friendly fire” attack on the Argylls in Korea which features in Scottish Military Disasters.
We had a surge in visits a couple of weeks back. We never did figure out what led to it but around the same time, Edinburgh Public Library recommended Scottish Military Disasters as good reading for Remembrance Day
I would have liked a discussion section for this website but previous attempts have been frustrated by people abusing it by flooding us with links to who-knows-what. So, my thinking is that this can be a combined blog and discussion forum. I’ll kick things off by posing a question put to me which certainly got me thinking. What would likely have happened if the Jacobite Army hadn’t turned back at Derby? Any ideas? Send your thoughts to me via the contact section of this site and I can post them here in the blog. Suggestions for other discussion topics are also welcome.
