Yesterday saw the launch of Bill Watson’s book ‘Gone To Ground’ at Duns Library in Scotland.

David Blair, our Scottish County Information Officer, gave a talk on the Auxiliary Units and the Duns Patrol.

The talks were attended by about 40 people and some of the relatives of the Duns Patrol were guests of honour.

We had hoped to broadcast the talk live on the Internet but there was a technical problem at the library which meant we were unable to make it happen.

David also left some flowers on the grave of Andrew Fortune, an Auxilier with the Duns Patrol.

Please see some of the images of the day below. The book can be bought here.

Bill completed the manuscript in April 2004 which included a dedication to his late wife, Betty. Bill’s dream was to have it published one day, sadly Bill died in November 2004, aged 80 and his work remained unpublished. In 2011 we obtained the rights to publish the book from Bill’s son. Now is the time to tell that story……………….
