1. I have been left my grandfather’s sporran, the royal scots, dated 1901 and I wanted to try and find out more about his service. His name was Robert Macaulay , dob 1880 I think he was from Beith Ayrshire and he moved down to Sheffield Yorkshire as a painter and married my grandmother in 1909. I knew my grandfather when I was little and was always told a story of a flag that he had captured/retrieved in a battle and this flag was given to Sterling castle museum some time ago and I would love to find out more about this story.
